Let It Be Morning (2021) is the story of Sami (Alex Bakri) a Palestinian-born Israeli citizen living in Jerusalem who is invited to his brother’s wedding in the Arab village where he grew up. After the wedding ends, Sami's hometown is put under a military blockade lockdown by the Israeli government, without explanation. Sami is cut off from the outside world and unable to return to his work in Jerusalem. Trapped in an unexpected situation, he deals with questions about his own identity.

"Let it be Morning" is based on Sayed Kashua's Novel with the same title.
