AMIRA

a film by :Mohamed Diab

Amira, a 17 year old Palestinian, was conceived with the smuggled sperm of her imprisoned father, Nawar. Although their relationship since birth has been restricted to prison visits, he remains her hero. His absence in her life is overcompensated with love and affection from those surrounding her. But when a failed attempt to conceive another child reveals Nawar’s infertility, Amira’s world turns upside down.

French Synopsis :

Amira, 17 ans, n’a jamais vu Nawar, son père, ailleurs qu’au parloir de la prison israélienne où il est détenu. Elle a été conçue grâce au sperme que son père a réussi à faire passer clandestinement hors de la prison.
Depuis toujours, Amira est vue comme la fille d’un héros de la Palestine dont elle a fièrement épousé la cause. Le jour où l’on découvre que Nawar est stérile et ne peut pas être son père, Amira se retrouve face à une question essentielle : qui est-elle ?
