A Short film by Nicolas Damuni

Produced by IPS

Production year : 2012


    Five young students from different backgrounds share an apartment in Ramallah. Stuck in their apartment due to a curfew and bombings outside, their confinement inspires them to prepare a dish of Maqloubeh* for lunch. After initially disagreeing about which ingredients are needed, the roommates finally agree on a compromise. But just as they sit down to enjoy their meal, an unexpected occurrence interrupts them and turns everything upside down.

    *Maqloubeh: a traditional Palestinian dish meaning "turn upside down."
