Chloe is a young Canadian doctor who divides her time between Ramallah, where she works with the Red Crescent, and Jerusalem, where she lives next door to her friend Ava, a young Israeli soldier.

Avoiding any political agenda, Chloe's story questions how one can internalize a foreign conflict without ... Written by
I watched it this evening in Montreal. The story describes how a Canadian humanitarian doctor tries to reconcile her life in both sides of the border between Israel and Palestine. The scenario is very good. Events occur smoothly in a straight forward way. The performance of Evelyne Brochu (the humanitarian doctor in the movie) is perfect. She was able to transmit the emotions experienced by the character in a powerful way. I liked the non judging aspect of the movie. On can see both sides as victims in certain way. My overall experience was very good. Both the actress "Evelyne Brochu" and the director "Anaïs Barbeau-Lavalette" gonna be in my watch list from now on.
