Movie Info

In 1967, not long after the Israeli Six Day War, noted author Amos Elon had moved into a new home in West Jerusalem, and he and his wife decided to hire someone to help watch over their one-year-old daughter, Danae. Mahmoud "Musa" Obeidallah, a Palestinian, applied for the job and got it, and so in the midst of bitter conflict, Danae grew up being taken care of and tutored by a man who was supposed to be a political rival of her family. In her early twenties, Danae lost contact with Musa, but recalled hearing that his children had relocated to New Jersey so they would be able to avoid the violence that had overrun his homeland. Years later, after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, Danae saw a news report stating that Patterson, NJ, was believed to have been home to an enclave of Arab terrorists, and Danae became both curious and concerned about the fate of Musa and his family. She decided to find Musa, and made a film about her search; Another Road Home was the result, and explores the odd contradictions of their relationship, as well as the deep affection that still exists between Danae and Musa.
