About the Film
Mustafa (Ali Suliman) and his wife Salwa live a mere 200 metres apart in two Palestinian villages on opposite sides of the separation wall. One day he gets a call every parent dreads - his son has been in an accident and is in the hospital. Rushing to cross the checkpoint to be with his family, Mustafa is denied entry and embarks upon a journey to cross the border illegally. A 200-metre distance becomes a 200-kilometre odyssey as Mustafa attempts to get to the other side of the wall joined by a motley crew of fellow passengers. Palestinian director Ameen Nayfeh’s debut drama is a heart-pounding depiction of the life-threatening struggles of daily life under occupation in an urgent story of resistance, dignity, family and hope.
