Twelve year-old Uri reports his teacher Balaban as a spy when he observes him when he meets with a young arab man. Only later does he discover that Balaban's interest in the young arab is romantic rather than political.
Today it is exactly the same as 36 years ago: love between Arabs and Jews is punished, hate and murder are accepted as normality. Dan Wolman casts a brave early look at this never-to-be-accepted situation.
