Palestine. 1939. A family is at odds over how to achieve freedom and survive in an increasingly contested land under foreign rule. True events inspire this "tragipoliticomedy" about the ill-fated Arab revolt against British occupation and the ills and absurdities of imperialism. Tackling the crucial years leading up to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as we know it, Tennis in Nablus combines humor, tragedy, and a rich tapestry of characters to weave an epic tale about a world on the brink of momentous change.
