Yoav and Tali, a young Israeli couple, are at a crossroads. While conflicting offers for PhD studies in the US put their relationship to the test, Yoav is called in for army reserve service at a checkpoint near Ramallah – just as an old flame comes back into his life.
Meanwhile in the Palestinian city of Ramallah, longtime differences in professional success have driven a wedge between married couple Hadil and Hisham – she a Christian, he a Muslim.
When Hisham’s brother is kidnapped by Palestinian security forces, however, the relationship takes a surprising turn. As the couples navigate their seemingly disparate lives, their worlds draw inexorably towards a life-changing collision.
Former member of Israeli parliament Prof. Yossi Yonah has written a hope-filled tragedy that deals with ordinary people’s daily lives in a place where nothing is ordinary. Yonah’s command of both Hebrew and Arabic language allows for a subtle and profound peek at the fascinating characters who currently call Israel and Palestine home.
