PORTLAND, Maine — 17 year-old Tal has emigrated from France to Jerusalem with her family. Following a bombing, she writes an open letter to the world, expressing her refusal to accept that only hatred can reign between Israelis and Palestinians. Her letter-in- a-bottle brings a response from Naïm, a young Palestinian. A turbulent but tender long-distance friendship develops as they both seek change in themselves and their world.
