As a Palestinian teenager, Sami Al Jundi had one ambition: overthrowing Israeli occupation. When a bomb he was building with two friends exploded prematurely, killing one of his friends, Al Jundi was sentenced to ten years in Israeli prison.
It was in prison that his unlikely transformation began. Al Jundi left prison still determined to fight for his people's rights – but with a very different notion of how to undertake that struggle.
Marked by honesty and compassion for Palestinians and Israelis alike, The Hour of Sunlight illuminates the Palestinian experience through the story of one man's struggle for peace.
