A documentary telling the harrowing story of Khitam, a Gaza born Palestinian woman married to an Israeli Arab. When her abusive husband divorces her in absentia in the Sharia court, she is left with no rights to see her six children, nowhere to live and no papers to legally remain in Israel. Her battle to regain custody and a permit to stay in Israel is met with brick walls at every turn.
