Tal is 17 years old. Naim is 20. She's Israeli. He's Palestinian. She lives in Jerusalem. He lives in Gaza. They were born in a land of scorched earth, where fathers bury their children. They must endure an explosive situation that is not of their choosing at an age where young people are falling in love and taking their place in adult life. A bottle thrown in the sea and a correspondence by email nurture the slender hope that their relationship might give them the strength to confront this harsh reality to grapple with it, and thereby ever so slightly change it. Only 60 miles separate them but how many bombings, check-points, sleepless nights and bloodstained days stand between them?Written by

Stupid and Propaganda movie.
Pure propaganda to please the large Muslim population in France, and also the socialistic aspirations of this country.
Plus, artistically, the movie is one of the worst I have ever seen. But, I am not surprised. French movies are most of the time worst than mediocre: screen directors, actors, settings, dialogues, etc.
And I am not surprised it has a 7.2 users' review. They must be French and / or Muslims who love to see a Jew having a relationship with them. it arouses their pride and self-esteem.
Additionally, the movie doesn't tell the truth. It rarely happens that Jews and Muslims interact. It can happen of course, but rarely. Also, a Palestinian, where it's so dangerous for a Jewish woman to go? What about, the guards who secure the border between Gaza and the West Bank and Israel? They would have noticed the Israeli Jew and wouldn't let her pass. It was the same when a Jewish Israeli citizen wanted to visit Egypt from Israel. They couldn't pass before !
Last, the description about checking, and security enforcement by Israelis has only one purpose: to demonize Israel and attract sympathy to the Palestinians. This, France loves it.
