STORY DESCRIPTION:

Two girls meet on- line. Samar (12), whose mother is an Israeli Arab and father is a Palestinian from the West Bank, lives in Lod, a mixed city of Jews and Arabs riddled with poverty and crime. Linor (11) was born in a Jewish settlement in the Gaza strip , and lives in Tlamim, a religious Jewish village . Lod and Tlamim are only 67 kilometers apart, but a national, cultural, and ideological chasm separates them. The educational-technological project that starts with innocent online correspondence, and continues with face-to-face meetings, adds a new – exciting, stressful, and surprising – element to the girls’ lives, and engages them and their families in a deep, complex experience.
