I met Arafat Abu-Rath, a Palestinian that lives in Nablus city in the occupied territory. Together we traveled to Sderot, an Israeli town next to Gaza that for ten years has been under the threat of missiles from Gaza.
I approach the residents who are used to being interviewed about their situation, and ask them to change sides, and to be interviewed as if they were Palestinians living under Israeli occupation.

At first, all residents are opposed on the grounds that they are the victims and in their situation they have no capability to feel empathy for the suffering of the enemy.

I convinced some of them to try it anyway, as I confront them with Arafat Abu-Rath and offer them to hear Arafat’s life story under Israeli occupation, so they can use his story as background material for their interview.

At the end of the film we see the final result - kind of a news report about life under Israeli occupation, but instead of Arabic-speaking Palestinians being interviewed, there are Hebrew-speaking Israelis who are playing the part. (Itamar Rose)
