It's Better to JumpDVD
The ancient city of Akka, along the northern coast of Israel, is the home to a melting pot of Muslims, Christians, Jews, and Baha'i. For centuries its surrounding forty-foot sea wall has protected its citizens and repelled invaders. As the Old City endures harsh economic pressures and vast social changes, Palestinian families who have lived here for generations are being pressured to leave. They continue an inter-generational rite of passage expressing their right to control their destiny: jumping from the high wall into the tempestuous sea below. This is the story of the spirit of Akka's Arab residents and the leap of faith they make.
