Recounts how two young Palestinians go from garage mechanics to suicide bombers preparing for a mission to Tel Aviv. Best friends Said (Nashef) and Khaled (Suliman) live in Nablus on the West Bank and apparently have guerrilla ties. They are informed that they have been chosen and have 24 hours to prepare; the men seem more resigned than fanatical. Director Abu-Assad pays close attention to the details.
