For 21 days, a woman is imprisoned in her apartment during the Israeli invasion of Ramallah in 2002. Besieged by terrors, her inner demons surface as shelling and bombing rages outside, while inside she wages an emotional war with a relationship gone wrong. The Clothesline contrasts scenes of domesticity with warfare, ferocious battles beyond with emotional struggles within all the while, her laundry hangs outside�a witness to troubles both inside and out.
