In July 2002, 22 Palestinian and Israeli teenage girls traveled to the United States to participate in a womens leadership program called Building Bridges for Peace. Most of them had lost loved ones in the conflict and all bore the psychological and emotional scars of living in a war zone. Far away from life as they knew it, many of them went through a transformation, living like sisters and recognising the common humanity in their so-called "enemies". The film tracks six of these individuals over the course of seven years, testifying not only to the importance of multi-faith and multi-cultural understanding but to the significance of the role of women in building peaceful communities.
