200 METERS

Mustafa and his wife Salwa come from two Palestinian villages that are only 200 meters apart, but separated by the border wall.  Their unusual living situation is starting to affect their otherwise happy marriage. Every night, Mustafa flashes a light from his balcony to wish his children on the other side a good night and they signal him back. One day, Mustafa gets a call that every parent dreads: his son has been in an accident. He rushes to the checkpoint where he must agonizingly wait in line only to find out there is a problem and is denied entry. Desperate, Mustafa resorts to hiring a smuggler to bring him across. His once 200-meter journey becomes a 200-kilometer odyssey.
