Salam (Kais Nashif) is down on his luck and short of cash. At the behest of his uncle he takes a job as gofer on popular Palestinian soap opera   Tel Aviv on Fire, which means he has to pass through an Israeli checkpoint to reach the television studios. He has a run-in with the commander of the checkpoint, Assi (Yaniv Biton), who reveals particular ideas about what he thinks should happen in the show. An unlikely collaboration begins. Tel Aviv on Fire is a rare, refreshing satirical comedy that addresses Palestinian-Israeli relations in a smart, warm-hearted manner.
