Comité pour une Paix Juste au Proche-Orient
Hany Abu-Assad's new film is based on true events. Reem, a young married mother, goes to Huda's hairdressing salon in Bethlehem, Palestine. After putting Reem in a compromising situation, Huda blackmails her and forces her to give information to the Israeli secret service, thus betraying her people. During the night, Huda is arrested by Hasan, a member of the resistance, endangering the lives of Reem and her family. The film denounces both the Israeli occupation and the often oppressive Palestinian patriarchy.
