The Other Son
The Other Son

As he is preparing to join the Israeli army for his national service, Joseph discovers he is not his parents’ biological son, and that he was inadvertently switched at birth with Yacine, the son of a Palestinian family from the West Bank. This revelation turns the lives of these two families upside down, forcing them to reassess their respective identities, their values, and their beliefs.
