A photo portrait of the sisters Elà and Leylà Ury, teenagers of 15 and 13, who live in London: one is wearing a Kefiyah, the Palestinian scarf, the other a Star of David. Elà and Leylà’s parents are David Ury (Tanya’s brother), a British Jew of German origin and Deniz Engin, a Turkish Muslim – they allow their children to live out a choice among several cultural and religious hybrids.
