Different Sky

This film is based on a true story, portraying a human drama of rare intensity through the daringly inspirational love story of a young couple, Amad and Isabella. Amad (25), a Palestinian from Nablus (a city under the control of the Palestinian Authority), and Isabella (25), a Brazilian illegal foreign worker who lives in the city of Tel Aviv, attempt to navigate their lives between the obstacles that face them under the complicated, bleeding reality of life in Israel.The film offers a refreshingly humanistic and neutral perspective into the day-to-day lives of potential West Bank suicide bombers and their families as well as their immediate surroundings. It is a film about the ‘simple man’ who stands at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Despite all odds, all he seeks is to live a normal life, in a place which is far from being just that.
