Tel Aviv on Fire

Salem (Kais Nashef) is a Palestinian from East Jerusalem, who is a low-level production assistant on the soap opera "Tel Aviv on Fire", in Ramallah. Following a lie he tells Asi (Yaniv Biton), an officer at the checkpoint he must pass through every day to get to work, he is suddenly promoted to be a screenwriter on the show. There is only one problem - Salem can't write.
