Lemon Tree
Salma, a Palestinian widow living in the West Bank, is awakened by the grating sound of sawing emanating from her carefully tended lemon grove. …Planted by her father over fifty years ago, Salma weeps bitter tears when informed that her beloved grove would be decimated because of the threat they pose to her new neighbors. The lemon trees are her only source of income. She is not about to let this happen without a fight and embarks on a battle that would be waged in court with words instead of weapons and bloodshed.
