Director: Erez Tadmor, Guy Nattiv
“Romeo and Juliet had Verona to contend with; Eyal and Rana have the entire globe.” - Variety
Israeli Eyal and Palestinian Rana are two strangers who, in normal circumstances, would never meet. But a chance event sees their lives intertwine when, in Berlin for the World Cup finals, they accidentally swap bags on the subway. This twist of fate leads them to spend three days together amongst the roaring soccer crowds, falling for each other even as the second Israel-Lebanon war erupts in the distant Middle-East.
When Rana is forced to return to Paris at short-notice, their fledgling relationship faces an uncertain future.
Victims of time and circumstance, Strangers is a tale of two star-crossed lovers traversing an impossible path.
