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 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. Caught up in the occupying machinery and socio-political pressure, Sarah and Saleem find themselves trapped in a web of deceit and not even the truth looks able to stop it.
This film is being shown in conjunction with Bath Friends of Palestine.
Bath Friends of Palestine exists primarily to raise awareness in and around Bath of who the Palestinians are and what their true situation is, as a corrective to the generally misleading images and narratives dominant in the mainstream media.
