They needed an excuse to cross the border—so they created a rock band.
This band isn't about music—they're not even that good. It's about breaking down walls and crossing boundaries. It's about Israeli and Palestinian women determined to end apartheid in a region consumed by tension and hatred. They're willing to risk their lives to repeatedly—and often illegally—cross the Israeli border for the sake of friendship and peace. Guided by an ambitious TV producer and a rabbi who wants to be a rock star, their music will unite hearts and join hands. Together, they'll make a difference in the spirit of song. - Cassia Homann
