Plot Summary: "Salt of the Sea" is a feature set in Palestine by first-time director Annemarie Jacir. The story centers on Soraya (Suheir Hammad), a Brooklyn-born woman of Palestinian lineage who comes to Israel to search for the ancestral home near Jaffa from where her grandparents were ejected 60 years ago. Once she arrives, reality strikes hard and her mission to claim what is hers and fulfill her dream to "return" to Palestine is obstructed at every turn. Shot in English and Arabic, the film was produced by Danny Glover.
