About the Film
Mustafa and his wife come from two Palestinian villages that are only 200 meters apart, but separated by the wall. While their unusual living situation poses a challenge to their marriage, they do what they can to make it work. When their son is hospitalized, Mustafa rushes to the checkpoint but is denied entry. This is when his once 200-meter journey becomes an odyssey.
