Two young men—a Palestinian grad student and an Israeli lawyer—meet and fall in love amidst personal and political intrigue in this striking debut feature.
This feature debut vividly uses the anxiety, precariousness and paranoia of Israeli-Palestinian relations to infuse the clandestine atmosphere of a love story where cross-cultural, cross-political conflict is only part of its couple’s troubles. A director to watch!
