Amin Jaafari is an Israeli Palestinian surgeon, fully assimilated into Tel Aviv society. He has a loving wife, an exemplary career, and many Jewish friends.

Convinced of her innocence, Amin abandons the relative security of his adopted homeland and enters the Palestinian territories. 2012, rated R. In Arabic with English subtitles. Drama.
