Arab Israeli filmmaker Ebtisam Maraʻana grew up in Paradise (Fureidīs in Arabic), a small fishing village overlooking the Mediterranean. One of the few Arab communities remaining after the 1948 war, Paradise became culturally and politically isolated as Jewish settlements sprang up around it, and today it is a place defined by silence and repression. This film follows the director's attempt to recreate the village's lost history, including the story of her childhood hero Suuad, the legendary local "bad girl" who was imprisoned as a PLO activist in the 1970s and banished from the community.

"The Veiled Hope explores the personal and political challenges facing Palestinian women through a series of wonderful portraits of women living on the Gaza and West Bank. The women explain how in their daily lives as doctors, schoolteachers and activists they are working to rebuild Palestinian cultural identity. They also provide a rare insight into the complex feelings women have surrounding the emergence of political Islamic movements. The Veiled Hope gives an in-depth analysis of the position of Palestinian women as they juggle women's and national liberation struggles"--Publisher's website.
