Synopsis

Sarah is Israeli and runs a café in West Jerusalem. Saleem is Palestinian from East Jerusalem and works as a delivery man. Despite being worlds apart, Sarah and Saleem risk everything as they embark on an affair that could tear apart their unsuspecting respective families. When a risky late-night tryst goes awry and threatens to expose them, the two of them look on helplessly as their frantic efforts to salvage what’s left of their lives further escalate things.

The film won Best Actress and Best Film Awards at the Durban International Film Festival and the Hubert Bals Fund Audience Award and Tiger Award - Special Mention at the 47th Rotterdam International Film Festival.
