8 Witnesses

Dafna Steiner is something different to everyone she knows. To her Yemenite mother, she’s a mistake. To her grandfather, she’s a reminder of the son he lost in the war, and the sister he left in Germany. To her childhood friends on kibbutz, she’s the daughter of a legend. To the American who meets her at a party in Jerusalem, she’s a femme fatal. To the Palestinian woman who comes upon her photography exhibit in Rome, she’s an enemy. And to the man who loves her, she’s a hard-hearted reality check.  Infinite identities. One life. Eight Witnesses.
