My Neighbourhood showcases the nonviolent efforts of Israelis and Palestinians working together to end the conflict and occupation by chronicling the daily lives of Mohammed el Kurd, a Palestinian teenager living in East Jerusalem, and Israeli activist, Zvi Benninga. Mohammed El Kurd is forced to give up half of his home to Israeli settlers, and comes-of-age in the midst of unrelenting tension with his neighbors and unexpected cooperation with Israeli allies in his backyard.
