Trivia

The three lead actors in the film, Shadi Mar'i (who plays Sanfur), Tsahi Halevi (who plays Razi) and Hitham Omari (who plays Badawi), were non-professionals who had never acted in a film before. Omari, a Palestinian from Kafr 'Aqab, was discovered during a location scout. Halevi was discovered just weeks before filming began; he was an aspiring singer who had just finished appearing on the first season of Israeli singing competition show "The Voice" Israel, where he had reached the final four. Mar'i, who was not even 17 at the time of the shoot, was discovered after hundreds of teenagers were auditioned. Many of the extras and bit players (both Israelis and Palestinians) were reenacting in the film scenes they experienced in their own lives. See more »

Goofs

The last scene, when he smashed the Israeli officer's head with a rock, we can see that there is no blood spatters on it, however on the next shot, while he is sitting apart we can see the blood marks. See more »
