Another Side of Peace introduces Roni Hirshenzon, a 60-year-old Israeli man who has suffered as much as any parent can imagine: both of Roni’s sons are dead. Each died at age 19 as a direct result of the violence in the region. Putting hatred and despair aside, Roni cofounded the Parents Circle, a support group for bereaved Israeli and Palestinian families who have lost children in the conflict. The film follows Roni’s journey as he comes to terms with the deaths of his two sons, and his efforts to reach reconciliation and promote peace. He works with Ghazi Briegieth, his Palestinian counterpart, to connect with other bereaved parents in Israel and the Palestinian Territories.
