Profiling Israelis and Palestinians who have devoted their lives to achieving non-violence and coexistence in the Middle East, If You Make It Possible presents a perspective not seen in television news.
The title derives from an aphorism in the Koran: "If you make it possible, it is possible." Many Israelis who have seen the documentary suggest a companion title drawn from the words of 20th century Zionist Theodor Herzl: "If you will it, it is no dream." Examining the unique lives, viewpoints, and character traits of these Middle East peacemakers, the film is a study of heroism and strength.
