A film by Muayad Alayan. In Arabic, Hebrew and English with German subtitles.
An affair of the heart becomes an affair of state: a Palestinian drama that takes the upheavals between Arabs and Jews to another, unusual level. Sex in the back of a truck – that just about sums up the affair between Sarah and Saleem. They meet several times a week, as soon as he’s finished delivering his pastries and she’s shut her café. Their affair is given added piquancy not just by the fact that they’re both married, but because Sarah is Israeli and Saleem Palestinian. When the pair are spotted together, the intelligence services on both sides take an interest in Saleem, because Sarah’s husband is no ordinary Israeli, but a high-ranking officer.
