Storyline

After an unusual morning, two 6-year-old boys, Hamza a Palestinian, and Baram an Israeli, leave their homes under usual circumstances. While each of their mothers is planning a new life for her child, the boys walk a great distance as Hamza chases the towns stray dog and Baram shakes off a fight he had with his sister, leading the two to meet at a hillside above an Israeli Settlement. Despite the fact that both boys come from strongly opinionated families, in which the rights for the land have been longed, and regardless of having no common language, Baram & Hamza become fast friends playing with nothing but dirt, rocks and an abandoned barrel. Innocently exchanging concrete items of their their identity, and before they even know it, they become part of the viscous cycle where humanity has become a luxury that is hard to achieve. Written by Zaid Abu Hamdan

Trivia

The film was initially supposed to be shot in Jerusalem in April/May 2009. When the sponsor wanted to change the ending, to favor an Israeli perspective, the director refused and moved the production to Amman, Jordan. When the same thing happened in Amman with the new sponsors, i.e., they requested a change in the ending to favor a Palestinian perspective, the director decided to shoot his vision in Los Angeles. This proved extremely effective in telling an unbiased story - the one that the director intended to tell. See more »

Quotes

Richard Hooban: Beautiful, pressing allegorical look into the current and past Palestinian/Israeli conflicts. Being such a complex politcal situation it is refreshing that this story is so accessibily simplified. Excellent action sequence editing, good sense of tension from middle of the piece to end. Over-all an informative/passionate use of filmmaking for socio-political awareness and change.
