A Palestinian couple and their son are separated by a border of just 200 meters. As the husband and wife struggle to bring some normality to their fractured life, things come to a head when there’s an emergency and the young boy needs his father. Ameen Nayfeh’s impressive first feature was Jordan’s official submission to the 2021 Academy Awards, and proved popular at last year’s BFI London Film Festival.
