Synopsis

Without adequate medical resources in the Palestinian territories, patients requiring advanced treatments in Israel are faced with a rigid bureaucratical wall. Ruth Walk’s documentary examines the interdependence of the Israeli and Palestinian health services and medical systems. Testimonies of patients, law enforcers, and doctors expose the intricate network of connections, regulations, and constraints that can either save or lose lives.
