Director: Yossi Atia
Hebrew with English subtitles

While walking down Jaffa Road, Jerusalemite Ronen overhears a tour guide offering a sanitized version of his hometown’s recent history. This inspires him to start his own “Terror Tour”, taking tourists to famous bombing sites and offering an ironic take on the absurdity of everyday life during the terrorist attacks of the 1990s and 2000s. On one tour he meets Asia, an ex-Jerusalemite living in Barcelona, and their relationship challenges him to begin healing from the trauma that envelops his emotional life.
