"Burning Land" is a coming-of-age story set in the West Bank in the turbulent early 2000s. The story follows Yair, a neglected teenager from Haifa who escapes to the outskirts of Samaria, finding companionship among the "Baladim" - a gang of runaways. The Baladim welcome Yair and enroll him in a Yeshiva led by Rabbi Grunberg, a secret supporter of their radical ideology. In this utopia, Yair finds all he ever wanted, but friction with the Palestinians and law enforcement imperils his newfound home.
