The movie follows Rajai, a Ford Transit driver which is the most popular transportation in the Palestinian occupied territories (occupied by Israel). While taking a ride with Rajai, we experience the frustrating situation the Palestinian need to deal with. On our trips from the roadblock in Ramallah to the roadblock in Jerusalem, we get to hear analysis of the situation by all kinds of random transporters, people from different religions, origins, and levels of class.

A fine documentary on the people who ride with a Palistian "Transit" driver. A deep in-site in to the people, and their thoughts and feelings on day to day life. From the smuggling of cucumbers and CD's, the roadblocks, to their views on Bush, terrorists, Israel, and the rest of the world.
A very enjoyable and entertaining journey. Each rider has a tale to tell, and the driver has many. Interviews with the mother of suicide bomber, to people who just want to get from point a to point b, and don't care about the political issues.
I came away from this film feeling that "everybody is wrong, and nobody is right" about the Middle East. A 5 star film.
