A man and a woman from two disparate worlds meet at nights just to have sex. However, when they get caught, the extra-marital relationship between an Israeli woman and a Palestinian man causes tensions in the socio-politically divided Jerusalem. What is at stake is no longer just their marriage. The Reports on Sarah and Saleem, the second feature from Palestinian director Muayad Alayan, travels through the streets of Jerusalem and masterfully showcases this ancient city during night time.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
