This documentary, produced by the Israeli Film Service, explores the experiences of foreign Arab patients who receive medical care in Israeli hospitals. Within Hadassa Hospital, one can find a significant number of patients from Arab countries, including Palestinian patients from the West Bank. Many of whom come from enemy nations. How the medical teams are treating these patients? What are the perceptions of other patients towards them? How do Arab patients view Israel? Is the coexistence of Jews and Arabs in hospital settings can foster friendships?
The film features a series of interviews that answer these questions and shed light on the diverse situations that arise from this unique phenomenon.
