Directed by | Hany Abu Assad

Genre fiction  |  Length: 80mins  |  Year of production: 2002

Director AbuAssad accompanies Palestinian taxi driver Rajai and his passengers as they attempt to circumnavigate and make sense of the mesh of physical, political and emotional barriers that delimit their lives in Jerusalem and Ramallah. Mixing scripted scenes with reality, the film's humor and sincerity gives voice to a range of revealing personal opinions about circumstances in Palestine during the latest Intifada.
