A mother works with the enemy, and takes her family down in that process. She ends up getting murdered. Abandoned by friends and relatives during her lifetime, no-one seems keen on finding her a decent burial place. That daunting tasks now rests on the delicate shoulders of the daughter. But she is trying to free herself from all the burden /legacy of her mother. And so the daughter ends up fighting fire with fire - getting caught up in a spiral of bad decisions.

‘High Heels and stuffed Zucchini’ is a play about an absurd world where a child cannot break free from her parents and from the emotional past. It is a story that tries to unravel what is 'good' and 'bad'. Is there such a thing as a destin or can we create our own destination? - against the background of the occupied Palestinian territories.
