Ticket to Jerusalem
Jaber tries to make ends meet for a good life with his wife in the Palestinian refugee camp near Ramallah, just north of Jerusalem. A kind, gentle man in his early 40s, Jaber runs a mobile cinema, bringing entertainment to both children and adults throughout the disputed territory of the West Bank. Because of the declining situation of the conflict, his mission meets more and more obstacles. Too many checkpoints, difficult-to-obtain permits…
One day, Jaber is encouraged by Rabab, a woman school teacher, to organize a screening in Jerusalem’s old city. His perseverance is put to the test when he investigates the complicated possibilities of staging this screening. His efforts get him involved in the problems of Rabab’s elderly mother, a Jerusalem resident trying to protect her home from Israeli settlers.
Tension erupts in Jaber’s relationship with his wife, Sanah, who questions her husband’s motives for continuing to take risks in his repeated trips to Jersusalem. But Jaber is determined to make the Jerusalem screening happen…
