The village of Beit Jann in the mountains of the Galilee holds the highest record of high school graduates in Israel, and possibly in the world. While the school only held a 12% graduation rate up to a few years ago, it has now climbed to 100%. Beit Jann inhabits a population of 12,000 Druze, an Arabic speaking ethnic group scattered around Israel, Lebanon, and Syria, suffering from systematic discrimination. This is the story of a closed society trying to find its way in a changing reality.
