Sarah is Israeli and runs a café in West Jerusalem. Saleem is a Palestinian deliveryman from East Jerusalem. Despite being worlds apart, they embark on a risky affair with potentially catastrophic consequences. When a late-night tryst goes awry and threatens to expose them, their frantic efforts to save themselves only worsen matters. Caught up in the deadly and constant socio-political tensions of the region, Sarah and Saleem find themselves trapped in a web of deceit that looks set to doom them. This taut thriller set across the Israeli-Palestinian border remains staunchly apolitical in its message. Instead, the machinations and mistrust of the highly volatile region serve as the plot devices that drive this gripping romance/thriller.
