In this clever comedy, Salem is a Palestinian from East Jerusalem, who is a low-level production assistant on the soap opera "Tel Aviv on Fire". Following a lie he tells Israeli military commander Assi, an officer at the Ramallah checkpoint he must pass through every day to get to work, Salem is suddenly promoted to be a screenwriter on the show. There is only one problem - Salem can't write screenplays. To avoid getting fired, Salem makes a deal with Assi, who helps him write in exchange for fine Palestinian hummus and a promise that the series' plot will end according to Assi's script. However, the Palestinian investors want a different ending, and it's up to Salem to figure out a resolution which will keep everyone happy. With TEL AVIV ON FIRE, we have a funny, perfectly balanced comedy on a very serious topic, which could only have been written by someone who has his feet and dear friends on both sides of the conflict, Writer/Director Sameh Zoabi.
