Rumaan follows the story of a pomegranate tree that was planted in Canada, grown from seeds that were transported from Haifa, Palestine by Mamdouh El-Kassem when he and his young family were forced to flee the Nakba in 1948. Mamdouh's son Zaki El-Kassem speaks about his decades-long attempts to preserve the tree and its seeds.
