Description

TEL AVIV ON FIRE

Salam, an inexperienced young Palestinian man, becomes a writer on a popular soap opera after a chance meeting with an Israeli soldier. His creative career is on the rise - until the soldier and the show's financial backers disagree about how the show should end, and Salam is caught in the middle.


"Zoabi relies on the old adage that we have more in common than not,
but it's a lesson that bears repeating - particularly when laughs come with it."

San Francisco Chronicle

"In offering a comedic take on not just the hostility between Israelis and Palestinians, but also the shared history and culture that bind them, "Tel Aviv on Fire" is an enjoyable respite from the bleakness that is far more typical of their stories."
Washington Post
