Bho chionn deich bliadhna, dh' fhàg Yousef, a bhean agus triùir chloinne ann am Paileastain gus beatha ùr a thòiseachadh dhaibh uile ann an San Francisco. Airson na deich bliadhna a chaidh seachad, tha e air a bhith ag obair là agus oidhche a' leasachadh gnìomhachas, a' sàbhaladh airgead agus a' feuchainn a bhith mar phàirt dhan choimhearsnachd ùr aige, ach fhathast a' cumail ceangal ris an àite a dh' fhàg e. Feumaidh Yousef smaoineachadh air a theaghlach agus a dhùthaich, 's aig an aon àm co-dhùnadh a dhèanamh an e beatha ùr ann am Ameireagaidh an t-slighe cheart dhaibh. Is dòcha gur e a bhith a' fuireach ann am Paileastain an roghainn as fheàrr. 'S e co-dhùnadh a th' ann a dh' fheumas iad a dhèanamh mar theaghlach agus a bheir cumadh air an àm ri teachd dhaibh.

Ten years ago, Yousef left his wife and three small children in Palestine to start a new life for them all in San Francisco. For the past decade he has worked day and night to build a small business, save money, and become part of his adopted community while still trying to stay connected from afar. Yousef must confront the current realities in both his family and his country and decide if a new life in America is really still the right path for them to take. Maybe staying in Palestine is the best option after all. Stay or go? It is an age-old choice that will decide their future, and one they ultimately make together as a family.
