Liwan is about a culture café in Nazareth, which was opened in 2016 by Sally Azzam when the old market of Nazareth was a no-go area, run down following an Israeli “redevelopment” project. Despite many difficulties, they opened, and many new cultural spaces have followed, driving a revival of the souq. They practise 'cultural resistance', organising activities that focus on the Palestinian identity. The film represents an important document of non-violent Palestinian resistance.
