Show times are 7 and 9:30 p.m. Friday; 4:30, 7 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday; and 2:30, 5 and 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $5.

An Israeli Palestinian surgeon, fully assimilated into Tel Aviv society, has a loving wife, an exemplary career and many Jewish friends. But his picture-perfect life is turned upside down after a suicide bombing in a restaurant leaves nineteen dead, and the Israeli police inform him that his wife, who also died in the explosion, was responsible. Convinced of her innocence, he abandons the relative security of his adopted homeland and enters the Palestinian territories in pursuit of the truth. Once there, he finds himself in ever more dangerous places and situations, seeking answers to questions he never thought he would be asking.

Starring Reymond Amsellem, Uri Gavriel, Karim Saleh and Ali Suliman, and written and directed by Ziad Doueiri, the film is rated R for some violence, adult language and sexuality with a run time of 102 minutes.
