This comedy involves a Palestinian from Jerusalem, working as a trainee on the Palestinian popular soap opera “Tel Aviv on Fire.” Every day, Salem must cross a difficult Israeli checkpoint. There, he meets its commander, Assi, whose wife is a big fan of the show. Assi offers ideas that Salam uses to promote himself as a screenwriter. His career soars until Assi and the show’s producers/financiers disagree on its ending. Salem solves his problems with a final masterstroke. In Hebrew and Arabic with English subtitles.
