The Reports on Sarah and Saleem

Sarah is Israeli and runs a café in West Jerusalem. Saleem is a Palestinian deliveryman from East Jerusalem. Despite both being married and coming from opposing sides of a deeply divided region, they are locked in a passionate and dangerous affair.

When a risky late-night trip to the West Bank goes awry and threatens to expose them, they quickly become the subject of a minor international crisis, caught up in the machinations of two warring states.

Desperate to keep their secret and protect their families, Sarah and Saleem find themselves trapped in a web of deceit, espionage and collusion that not even the truth looks able to stop.

This gripping, accomplished thriller set across the Israeli-Palestinian border refuses to take sides, instead illustrating how in Jerusalem, even sex can be made political.
