    "This directorial debut which looks at a new third generation of Palestinians livng in Israel is a fascinating take on a group of young people whose future is so constrained it almost compresses the screen."
    Fionnuala Halligan, Screen Daily
  • Highest Rating
    "Khoury’s convincing and engaging screenplay perfectly captures teenage fearlessness and bravado along with a certain cluelessness about how the real world works. This intelligent, sensitive treatment of the rarely seen, everyday lives of young Palestinian citizens of Israel marks tyro feature writer-director Firas Khoury as a talent to watch...."
