This 2005 film tells the story of what may be the last 48 hours in the lives of two Palestinian men who have been recruited as suicide bombers in Tel Aviv during the Second Intifada (2000-2005). When they are intercepted at the Israeli border, a young woman who discovers their plan causes them to reconsider their actions. The film won a Golden Globe for best foreign language film and was the first Palestinian film to have been nominated for an Academy Award in that category.
