Promises is a compelling, refreshing, and humorous vision of the Middle East conflict through the eyes of seven children growing up in Jerusalem. Living no more than 20 minutes apart, but locked in separate worlds, the film explores the boundaries that lie between these Palestinian and Israeli children and tells the story of a few who dared to cross the lines to meet their neighbors.
