Calls Across the Wall

The story of Hello Peace, a phone line which has facilitated nearly a million conversations between Israelis and Palestinians, and of Parents' Circle, a forum of bereaved families from both sides of the conflict who have rejected the path of hatred and revenge to reach out to each other.
