Synopsis


I'm sure you were flirting with her even in the last 60 seconds of your life.


Ten seemingly unrelated vignettes explore connection and alienation, framed by life in modern-day Palestine.


From a Palestinian keffiyeh merchant to a Belgian tourist, conversations and arguments between strangers, friends, lovers and colleagues highlight our collective experience as well as our differences - unearthing and undoing assumptions and stereotypes.
