Miral (2010)

The unfortunate lives of three generations of Palestinian women serve to remind us of the suffering and injustice inflicted by the partition of Palestine.

There's a fair bit going on behind the scenes when you realise this is an adaptation of a mostly autobiographical novel filmed by a director whose mum was a Zionist.
