Rashid MASHARWI - Palestine


The film takes place in one night. Five Palestinians are trapped inside a small apartment during the war on Gaza Strip. Political and social divisions among themselves, and religious intolerance, and the lack of acceptance of the other despite the difference, are factors that go beyond their solidarity and weaken their resistance against the israeli occupation.
