A documentary look at the Black Panthers in Israel, the social movement of second-generation Jews of Arab and Muslim origin residing in Israel, the Mizrahim. Key leaders in the movement speak of the struggle in the 1970s and the current day, of the role played by the Shas party in quelling that struggle, of the relationship between the occupation and oppression of the Palestinians, and the social and cultural oppression of the Mizrahim.
