In this beautiful film we follow the attempts to harness wind and solar energy for the benefit of the residents of the Palestinian village of Susia. And in the process we get to know extraordinary individuals from both sides of the conflict. What was missing in Noam Dotan’s otherwise perfect life? What made him- and others, leave symbols of success and devote themselves to a renewable energy project in a Palestinian village? What is this dream, shared with the residents of Susia, which is today coming to fruition? They work through action, rather than through protest or demonstrations. Three years in the making, in joint meetings with local residents, they have created a renewable energy project at Susia. They have succeeded in supplying electricity for residents living in tents and caves, figuratively and literally lighting up their lives.
