In July 2002, 22 Palestinian, Israeli and Palestinian Israeli teenage girls traveled to the United States to participate in a women's leadership program called Building Bridges for Peace. "My So-Called Enemy" is the story of 6 of the girls and how the transformative experience of knowing their "enemies" as human beings meets with the realities of their lives at home in the Middle East over the next 7 years. Through the coming-of-age narratives of Building Bridges participants Adi, Gal, Hanin, Inas, Rawan and Rezan, we see how creating relationships across personal, political and physical borders is a first step towards resolving conflict. By watching "My So-Called Enemy" communities will see the complexities of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict though a human lens--and the possibility and hope that come from listening to each other's stories. The girls are the experts in "My So-Called Enemy"--and their voices need to be heard, especially because they are young women.
