RITE OF RETURN

Written and directed by Victoria Linchong. 

A young American woman struggles to discover her history and understand a recurring nightmare as her Palestinian friend slowly becomes radicalized by the daily indignities of Israeli occupation. Their correspondence forms a Janus-faced portrait of two girls at the crossroads of a violent past and an uncertain future.
