Lemon Tree is Eran Riklis’ engaging human drama of one woman’s struggle to preserve her way of life in the midst of political turmoil. Actress Hiam Abbass is Salma, a Palestinian widow who earns her living tending to her late father’s lemon grove. When an Israeli government minister moves next door and declares the grove a potential security threat, Salma struggles to defend her peaceful livelihood. Personal drama gives way to political controversies as Salma forms an unexpected bond with the minister’s lonely wife, and takes her protest, with the help of her young lawyer, all the way to the Israeli Supreme Court.
