In a place torn by conflict, where the idea of peace has been abandoned, an energy of determined optimism emerges when someone is willing to disturb the status quo and stand for the dream of a free and secure world. Who will stand with them?

DISTURBING THE PEACE follows former enemy combatants: Israeli soldiers from elite units, and Palestinian fighters, many of whom served years in prison. Together, they have joined together to challenge the status quo and say “enough.” The film reveals their transformational journeys, from soldiers committed to armed battle, to nonviolent peace activists.
