Palestinian director Sameh Zoabi delivers an irreverent satire on the Arab-Israeli conflict in this award-winning film. A hapless intern on a well-liked Arab soap opera, popular in both the Territories and Israel, Salaam must navigate through an Israeli checkpoint every day to get to the Ramallah studio. In order to gain favour with the commander of the checkpoint, Salaam allows him to suggest changes to the plot that would see a sultry Arab spy fall in love with an IDF general. Torn between the demands of the army officer and the show’s Arab financial backers on how the love story will end, Salaam devises a final masterstroke.
