In one of the oldest cities in the world, an ancient identity has been under threat for almost a century. Violence and discrimination has consumed the narrow streets of East Jerusalem, and this film seeks to document the lives of a Palestinian population struggling to hold on to what little identity they have left. Samer, a young Jerusalemite tries to maintain his presence in the city, despite the Israeli government’s efforts to expel him. Abu-Falah is an aging blacksmith who is constantly harassed into vacating his shop in the old city. Hummus is a metaphor to a Palestinian identity that is constantly under the threat of being hijacked.
