It is 1947, and Beit Daras, a rural Palestinian village, is home to the Baraka family: their eldest daughter Nazmiyeh, their brother Mamdouh, the beautiful and dreamy Mariam and their widowed mother.
When the Israeli forces descend, sending them to the burning village, the family must take the long road to Gaza, a walk that will test them to their limits.
Sixty years later, in the United States, Mamdouh's granddaughter, Nur, falls in love with a doctor.
Following his work in Gaza, he meets Alwan, who will help Nur discover the bonds of kinship that transcend distance, and even death.
Told with stark humanity, The Blue Between Sky and Water is a lyrical and devastatingly beautiful story about the relocation, separation, survival and love of a family.
