Love During Wartime

The film follows Osama and Jasmin, newlyweds trying to build a life together against what look like impossible odds: She’s Israeli, he’s Palestinian. When their homelands turn their backs on them, they choose to live in exile. This tender tale of a love infiltrated by politics follows a real-life Romeo and Juliet on their odyssey from the Middle East through an inhospitable Europe. As their hopes rise and fade with each bureaucratic hurdle, will their love survive?
