Salam, an inexperienced young Palestinian man, becomes a writer on a popular soap opera after a chance meeting with an Israeli soldier. As he and the soldier (who he meets at the check point he passes through each day) collaborate on ideas for the show, Salam’s creative career is on the rise – until the soldier and the show’s financial backers disagree about how the show should end. Thoughtful and well-acted, this comedy highlights the awful absurdity of war — and proves it’s possible to find humor in the midst of cultural conflict.
