Overview:


From Julian Schnabel, Academy-Award®-nominated director of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, comes Miral, the story of four women whose lives intertwine in the starkly human search for justice, hope, and reconciliation amid a world overshadowed by conflict, rage, and war. The story begins in war-torn Jerusalem in 1948 when Hind Husseini (Hiam Abbass of MUNICH, THE VISITOR) opens an orphanage for refugee children that quickly becomes home to 2,000 orphans. One of the children is seventeen-year-old Miral (Freida Pinto of SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE) who arrived at the orphanage 10 years earlier, following her mother's tragic death. On the cusp of the Intifada resistance, Miral is assigned to teach at a refugee camp where she falls for a fervent political activist, Hani (Omar Metwally of RENDITION). Soon she finds herself in a personal battle that mirrors the greater dilemma around her and she is forced to decide between fighting like those before her or following Mama Hind's defiant belief that education will pave a road to peace.
