In bringing his autographical play to the Jewish-Arab city of Acre, a Palestinian theatre director Azam Salameh re-ignites more than the romance between his grandmother, the singer Layla and Dr Alfasi the last Jewish citizen who stayed in Acre during the War of 1947. Meeting resistance from both communities, the play comes under threat. 

Acre Dreams, a beautifully crafted film, nuanced and engaging, is based on a true love story, set during the last days of the British Mandate, and is the latest work from Daniel Wachsmann, writer, actor and one of Israel’s most prolific film and television documentary and drama producers and directors.
