Muayad Alayan’s moving drama follows a young Rebecca as she is forced to move with her father from the UK to Jerusalem, in the hopes that a new beginning can help her heal from her mother’s sudden death. Soon after settling into an old house in a neighbourhood known as the Valley of the Ghosts, a series of mysterious events begin to unfold, and Rebecca is blamed. Diving deep into the mystery of the house and the mystical city of Jerusalem, Rebecca sets out on an enigmatic journey to discover what hides in the shadows of the house.  

Crafted by the talented duo Muayad and Rami Alayan, A House in Jerusalem is an eerily suspenseful and touching story told through the eyes of a young girl, exploring the strength of memory and the power of love.
