Going Home

Synopsis
Major Derek Cooper, a witness to the final days of the British Mandate in Palestine in 1948, was so moved by the dispossession of the Palestinian Arabs and the creation of the state of Israel that he continued to work on behalf of Palestine’s refugees for most of his life. The film tells the story of his return to the country in 1995.
