FOR MY FATHER (Sof Shavua B'Tel Aviv)



Tarek, a young Palestinian sent on a suicide mission inside Israel to redeem his family's honor, is given a second chance when the bomb's switch fails to detonate on his explosive vest. Stranded in Tel Aviv for 48 hours as repairs are being made, Tarek develops deep and profound connections with three Israelis. Among them is beautiful Keren who is estranged from her Orthodox family. An unlikely love between born enemies blooms by weekend's end when Tarek must make the decision of his life.

Nominated for seven Israeli Academy Awards.
