The Knife

Synopsis
During a shoot on a film set, a film director argues with his main actor over the course of action of a film about a young Palestinian fugitive. The film centers on a moment of hesitation between dying a martyr and surrendering to the Israeli army.

When, in reality, the army attacks the film set, both director and actor align in their reaction.
