    Brief synopsis

    Tarek, ein junger Palästinenser, will sich auf dem Carmel Markt in Tel Aviv in die Luft sprengen. Durch einen Defekt am Zünder der Bombe gewinnt er zwei Tage Lebenszeit in Tel Aviv. So lernt er zum ersten Mal das Leben von jüdischen Israelis kennen und zweifelt am Ende dieser Tage an der Richtigkeit seiner Tat.
