Two elderly siblings search through their personal library. It is a cold, windy evening in Bethlehem. They built it during their 66 years in exile from Jerusalem. A faded photo, a family portrait and a British Mandate of Palestine ID are some of the remnants that accompany their recollections of the city they were torn apart from since 1948. They wait. Time passes and the distance from home expands.
This film is part of a series of shorts featured in the web documentary art, Dream Homes Property Consultants (DHPC).
