200 Meters

Synopsis: Mustafa and his wife Salwa live 200 metres apart in villages separated by the wall. One day he gets a call every parent dreads–his son has had an accident. Rushing to cross the Israeli checkpoint, Mustafa is denied on a technicality. But a father’s love won't give up and he will do anything to reach his son. A 200-metre distance becomes a 200-kilometre odyssey, as Mustafa, left with no choice, attempts to smuggle himself to the other side of the wall.
