Blood is Blood (Part 2): The Lemon Tree

A house with a lemon tree in the yard is claimed by two families but only one can live in it. It was built by a Palestinian family in 1936, then in 1948 taken from that family and given to a Jewish family of Holocaust survivors. The Arab family had a son, Bashir, six years old in 1948. The Jewish family had a daughter; Dalia. Years later Bashir returns to his old family home, meets Dalia and asks if he can come in and look around. "The Lemon Tree" is a remarkable story of friendship across a tough and intractable divide, a friendship which will be severely tested
