Winner of two major awards at Rotterdam Film Festival, Palestinian director Muayad Alayan’s second feature follows an adulterous couple caught in the quagmire of contemporary Israel and Palestine. Sarah runs a cafe in West and Saleem, from East Jerusalem, delivers bakeries in the West. On a fateful night, their illicit affair is discovered in Bethlehem. Caught up in the occupying machinery and socio-political pressure, they find themselves trapped in a web of deceit and not even the truth looks able to stop it.
