An examination of the creation of the state of Israel in 1948 through to the present day. A beautiful, unique, and deeply personal depiction of Palestine since 1948 from the internationally acclaimed director of Divine Intervention.

"The Time That Remains" is a semi biographic film, in four historic episodes, about a family spanning from 1948, until recent times. The film is inspired by a father’s diaries of his personal accounts, starting from when he was a resistant fighter in 1948, and by a mother’s letters to family members who were forced to leave the country since then. Combined with the director's intimate memories of them and with them, the film attempts to portray the daily life of those Palestinians who remained in their land, those who were labeled "Israeli-Arabs," living as a minority in their own homeland.
