Fiction - Palestine/Luxembourg/Iceland

Inspired by several historical events, Najwa Najjar’s third film is a modern-day road-trip drama. Nazareth –born Salma and Tamer, the son of a revolutionary killed in Beirut, have decided to divorce after five years of marriage in the Occupied Palestinian Territory. For the first time, Tamer is given a three day permit to cross the Israeli checkpoint to file for divorce in the courts of Nazareth. However, things do not go as planned when the court’s clerk refuses to process the divorce after he confronts them with a secret about Tamer's father's past - an affair with an Iraqi Jewish woman in the 1950s. With only 72 hours to find the father's lover to get the documents needed to finalize the divorce before Tamer's permit expires, the couple sets out on a journey that takes them between the present and the past.
