Synopsis: Since the 1967 six day war, and the annexing of East Jerusalem to Israel, its Arab population has lived in a sort of limbo, being recognized as Israeli residents but not as Israeli citizens. This film explores this state of perpetual limbo through the lives of three East Jerusalem inhabitants; a sick man in urgent need of medical treatment, a young girl seeking recognition by the State of Israel and a man desperately attempting to re-build his demolished home. All are forced to grapple with Kafkaesque bureaucratic reality of being an Arab resident of East Jerusalem, a reality marked by standing in a single line outside the single office of the Israeli Interior Ministry in East Jerusalem. Through the lives of its protagonists, the film offers viewers a deeper understanding of the impact the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has on regular people striving to lead normal lives under extraordinary circumstances. As such, the film’s protagonists are also its heroes. The first version of the film, which was screened in the Israeli Parliament and Supreme Court, led to the construction of a new branch of the Israeli Interior Ministry in East Jerusalem. This version also returns the film’s heroes 13 years later in order to learn if the reality in which they live has changed
