Tarek is a 20-year-old Palestinian assassin. Sealing off the West Bank put a stop to his career as a footballer. Under mounting pressure he decides to sacrifice himself. For his family, for the political cause, for the life he is deprived of. But when he pulls the fuse, the bomb around his waist fails to explode. Due to the Sabbath, the trigger can only be repaired two days later – two days in which he experiences his enemy’s everyday life. Winner of the audience prize at the Moscow Film Festival.
