Israela is the story of a life-loving people torn by war. It is about Arabs who save Jews from disaster and Jews who heal Arabs, a story of a family fragmented and desperately searching for the right path.
Here, the lives of three women interweave with the story of their country. Ratiba, an Israeli journalist, turns her back on her heritage to marry an Israeli Arab. Her sister Orit, an actor, lives alone and longs for her lost sister. Elisheva is a nurse who dedicates her life to the wounded and the dying. As their lives unfold, the women face choices they would never have envisioned.
Here, the ancient pulsates in present time and the biblical holds prominence with the secular. Beneath this modern-day drama unfolds the story of a land and its people,revealing the trajectory of two cultures, victims and perpetrators of a biblical curse.
