About this show

Desert Sunrise begins with a chance encounter between an Israeli soldier and a Palestinian shepherd seeking refuge in a desert valley in the Israeli occupied West Bank. Warily, they circle each other, quarreling, laughing, joking, dancing, fighting their way to a place of mutual acceptance. Just when it seems they have forged a bond, the Palestinian's girlfriend - fueled by rage, despair and radical fundamentalism - abruptly alters their trajectory.
