Summary
  • Two Palestinian men are recruited to take part in a suicide bombing in Tel Aviv
  • Saïd and Khaled are walking time bombs. With explosives strapped to their bodies, the two young Palestinians slip into Israel, planning a suicide mission in Tel Aviv. Any anything or anyone change their minds? ... Tells the story of these two lifelong friends, and their mission of doom. Hany Abu-Assad directs, shooting this harrowing thriller in locations made equally harrowing by real-life missile attacks, exploding land mines, suspicious Palestinian factions and Israeli occupied forces, and the kidnapping of a crew member. ... Provides no easy answers. Instead ... lays bare the humanity and the horror for all to see, to ponder, and perhaps to change
