Following a suicide bombing near her home in West Jerusalem, Tal, a Jewish girl of French origin, tries to understand why Palestinians are motivated to perpetrate such attacks. Her older brother, who has completed his military service in Gaza, suggests that she throw a bottle containing a letter into the Gaza sea. On the other side, a group of young Palestinians finds the message and one of them, a boy named Naim, decides to contact Tal through email.

  • 1 star "Let's see ... give Palestinians land they will almost certainly use to murder Israeli civilians from OR use it as a buffer to spare those casualties instead. Mmm ... decisions, decisions."
  • 3 stars "people need to realize that there were no suicide bombing etc. before israel was made forcefully, so save yourself some words and read more. clearly there's group of people who targeted muslim and colonized their countries, how muslim don't call those terrorists and absurd people? palestinians have the right to get their land back from zionist(free masons) occupiers."
