Men on the Edge-Fishermen’s Diary

A film about Palestinian and Israeli fishermen on the Mediterranean shoreline, between Israel and Gaza; these are rough men, uninhibited and outspoken, who do not hesitate to speak their mind in a rude and direct language. The film depicts them as men of two nationalities, who work together against the elements, thereby forming a unique intimacy, men fighting something much greater than themselves, relying on each other for their lives.
