Nominated for an Oscar in 2014; a gripping thriller about betrayal and love. Omar (Adam Bakri), a young Palestinian baker and freedom fighter ready to risk his life to strike at the Israeli military with his friends Tarek (Eyad Hourani) and Amjad (Samer Bisharat) in the Occupied Territories. He routinely climbs over the separation wall to meet his girlfriend Nadia (Leem Lubany) and agrees to work as an informant after he’s tricked into an admission of guilt by association in the wake of an Israeli soldier’s killing. So begins a dangerous game, is he playing his Israeli handler (Waleed F. Zuaiter) or will he really betray his cause? And who can he trust on either side? Palestinian filmmaker Hany Abu-Assad (Paradise Now) has made a dynamic, action-packed drama about the insoluable moral dilemmas and tough choices facing those on the frontlines of a conflict that shows no sign of letting up.
