A middle-aged slacker fails upwards in his job on the set of a popular Palestinian soap opera only to end up fielding script notes from a disgruntled Israeli military officer, in this satire from writer-director Sameh Zoabi (Under the Same Sun, The Idol).
One of the most irreverent cinematic spins on the Israeli–Palestinian conflict, the latest from writer-director Sameh Zoabi follows a fledgling soap-opera scenarist charged with concocting plot twists to suit viewers on both sides.
