The filmmaker returns to his family in Ramle and Jaffa. In long shots, conversing with the family and exploring the fragmented geo-graphy of the homeland, Aljafari exposes the transformation of public space and its social and historical structures through Israeli politics. The eponymous roof refers to the missing roof of the house, which the family inhabits since 1948. It belonged to another Palestinian family, also expelled then, and was never completed.
