Mustafa and his wife Salwa live 200 meters apart, separated by one of the world’s most militarized crossings. One day he gets a call every parent dreads: his son has had an accident. Rushing to cross the Israeli checkpoint, he is denied by a technicality. Willing to do anything to reach his son, Mustafa attempts to smuggle himself to the other side of the wall, and the 200-meter distance becomes a 200-kilometer odyssey.
