Al Rihla (The Journey)
Sarah and Salam are two strangers who meet at a train station. Each is about to take a trip but in very opposite directions. Sara wants to blow herself up using an explosive belt inside the station. Salam wants to rescue himself and everyone in the station - including Sarah. Profound and compelling, this is a powerful examination of the choice of life or death.
