A film by Mayan Engelman and Eliran Peled
1938, The Rex movie theater opens its doors in a grand gala on the most fragile location in Jerusalem -where two rivals meet.
At the center of the plot are two ten years old: The projector's son, Moeiz, a Jewish boy, and the popcorn seller's daughter, Ranin, an Arab girl.
Although he speaks only Hebrew, and she speaks only Arabic, they form a close friendship based on a new language, the language of cinema.
The Rex Cinema becomes the center of their lives, and when the conflict gets sizzling outside, they will need to find a way to protect it.
