Official synopsis per Cohen Media: Amin Jaafari is an Israeli Palestinian surgeon, fully assimilated into Tel Aviv society.  He has a loving wife, an exemplary career, and many Jewish friends. But his picture perfect life is turned upside down when a suicide bombing in a restaurant leaves nineteen dead, and the Israeli police inform him that his wife Sihem, who also died in the explosion, was responsible. Convinced of her innocence, Amin abandons the relative security of his adopted homeland and enters the Palestinian territories in pursuit of the truth. Once there, he finds himself in ever more dangerous places and situations. Determined, he presses on seeking answers to questions he never thought he would be asking.

I saw this film last fall in Telluride and have been waiting for it to get a US release. I really enjoyed it…well, as much as one can enjoy such a topic. If it comes it's worth it to see the performances of the shocked Ali Suliman who is in almost every frame of the film and Uri Gavriel who walks a balance of friend and investigator as Moshe.
