The Other Son (Le Fils De L'autre)
When Joseph - Jules Sitruk - goes through all the medical examinations prior to his national service in the Israeli army it is discovered that his blood group does not match either of his parents, neither his doctor mother Orith - Emmanuelle Devos - or his colonel father Alon - Pascal Elbe. It's discovered that when Joseph was born he was actually given to the wrong parents. His birth parents Leila - Arren Omari and Said - Khalifa Natour - are Palestinian living on the West Bank, and their son Yacine - Mehdi Dehbi - who has just returned from studying in Paris, actually belongs to Orith and Alon.... Or does he?

Although shaken to the core, the two mothers  process the revelations as an emotional issue – a mistake for which nobody is to blame – and form a tentative bond.  But the men are almost unmanageably angry and can’t help adding political consideration.

The Palestinian couple lost another son, presumably due to something Israel did and, of course as a military officer, Alon wants no part in having to adjust to the fact that the boy he raised is actually Palestinian by blood.
