My Name is Musa

My name is Musa. Rosa, a British Jewess, has been invited with her husband, David, to stay on a Jewish settlement on the Palestinian West Bank. The settlement overlooks an Arab village. Much against the advice of her hostess, Rebecca, the couple go on a little walk. The astonishing discovery of an abandoned Palestinian baby is to change their lives forever. ‘My name is Musa’ is a note written in Arabic pinned to the baby’s shawl. They find out that the baby has a congenital heart defect and although they leave the baby in Bethlehem, Rosa cannot get Musa out of her mind. Months later Rosa brings him to London for a heart operation and finally he is adopted by the couple. Will David ever truly accept this foreign baby? And will Musa ever discover his birth parents?
