Salam, an inexperienced young Palestinian man, becomes a writer on a popular soap opera after a chance meeting with an Israeli soldier. His creative career is on the rise - until the soldier and the show's financial backers disagree about how the show should end, and Salam is caught in the middle.
This is a fun movie that bounces right along. The hero is a writer on a Palestinian soap opera set during the lead up to the Six Day War of 1967. He is short on experience and ideas, and starts getting help from overheard conversations and other unexpected sources. At the same time, he is subjected to conflicting pressures from various source -- how to keep them all happy? I found it to be a charming entry to the genre of struggling script writers, from 'Sweet Liberty' and 'Shakespeare in Love' to the more recent 'Their Finest'.
