DC Premiere


No one really appreciates Kamel Nadjer, the young Bedouin security guard at the Be’er Sheba central bus station—neither his family, nor his Israeli colleagues. When the destitute tin shacks he shares with his family are threatened by demolition orders, Kamel makes a curious set of fateful decisions in his attempt to act as a hero.
