In a comic and surrealistic drama, Elia Suleiman follows the story of two lovers who are prevented from meeting: between Jerusalem and Ramallah, they are separated by an Israeli checkpoint, the shadow of which bears witness to their love. Faced with the inability to escape the reality of the occupation, the pair's complicit desire ends up having violent repercussions.
