Sheherazade’s Tears presents the struggle diary of choreographer Irina Jammal, a Ukrainian married to an Israeli Arab. Irina teaches ballet dancing in an Arab village. She travels with her students, an Arab boy and a Jewish girl, who perform a piece from “Sheherazade” at the the Kiev youth ballet festival. They demonstrate her belief that where people can dance together they also can live together.
