The Attack


A film by Ziad Doueiri
Starring Ali Suliman, Reymonde Amsellem

When a suicide bombing happens in Tel Aviv, a surgeon goes on a pursuit of the truth when his wife is accused of being the bomber.

An Israeli Palestinian surgeon, Amin Jaafari, lives a virtually picture perfect life in Tel Aviv. He has a loving wife, a successful career, and many Jewish friends but his entire world is turned upside down when a suicide bombing in a restaurant leaves nineteen dead, and the Israeli police inform him that his wife Sihem, who also died in the explosion, was responsible. Convinced of her innocence, Amin enters the Palestinian territories in pursuit of the truth. Once there, he finds himself in ever more dangerous situations and seeking answers to questions he never thought he would be asking.

Surefooted and fearless even as it ventures deeper and deeper into the dark heart of one of the most defining and complex conflicts of our time. —Jessica Kiang, indieWIRE
