3 Kiosso Street

An apartment building in Jaffa is home to both Jews and Arabs, representing opposite extremes of the political spectrum. Haski is head  of the tenants’ committee; Omar, a Muslim, hopes that things will change  for the better; Charlie and Samia are Christian Arabs, trying to impart Christian values to their children; Itzik is Chairman of the local Elvis Presley fan club, and is opposed to having Arabs move into the building; Mazal is constantly snooping on her daughter, after catching her datin  an Arab; Oded loves dogs as much as he hates Arabs; and Ilana is a  member of “Women in Black,” and demonstrates every week on behalf of the Palestinians, but remains aloof from her own neighbors. This delicate  coexistence comes to a climax one wintry night, when the residents meet  in their moonlit courtyard to discuss yet another threat by Haski to  quit the tenants’ committee.
