“A taut, psychosocial drama.” — Variety
Sarah is Israeli and runs a café in West Jerusalem. Saleem is Palestinian, from East Jerusalem, and works as a deliveryman. Despite being worlds apart, Sarah and Saleem risk everything as they embark on an illicit affair that could tear their unsuspecting families apart. When a risky late-night tryst goes awry and threatens to expose them, the two look on helplessly and try frantically to salvage what’s left of their lives. Caught up in the occupying machinery and socio-political pressure, Sarah and Saleem find themselves trapped in a web of deceit, where even the truth seems unlikely to help them.
