Summary: A powerful crime drama set on the streets of Jaffa's Ajami neighborhood--a melting pot of cultures and conflicting views among Jews, Muslims and Christians--and told through the eyes of a cross-section of the city's inhabitants: a young Israeli fighting a criminal vendetta against his family, a Palestinian refugee working illegally to finance a life-saving surgery, a Jewish police detective obsessed with finding his missing brother, and an affluent Palestinian dreaming of a future with his Jewish girlfriend. As their stories intersect--and the film's narrative shifts back and forth in time--we witness a dramatic collision of different worlds and the tragic consequences of enemies living as neighbors.
