At the age of 23, Hiam Abbass (known for her roles in Red Satin, The Visitor and Gaza mon amour, as well as the hit series Succession and Ramy) took the difficult decision to leave her grandmother, mother and family behind in the Palestinian village of Deir Hanna to pursue an acting career in Europe. In the following years, she returned to her parental home each summer, accompanied by her daughter Lina Soualem, who would go on to direct Bye Bye Tibériade. Each of these family visits was recorded on home video.
