My Neighbourhood chronicles the coming-of-age story of Mohammed El Kurd, a Palestinian boy growing up in the heart of East Jerusalem. When Mohammed turns 11, his family is forced to give up part of their home to Israeli settlers, who are leading a campaign of court-sanctioned evictions to guarantee Jewish control of the area. Determined to remain in their homes, Mohammed and his neighbors wage a campaign of nonviolent protests against the evictions. In a surprising turn, they are quickly joined by scores of Israeli supporters who are horrified to see what is being done in their name.
