Sarah is Israeli and runs a cafe in West Jerusalem. Saleem is Palestinian from East Jerusalem and works as a delivery man. Despite being worlds apart and married to other people, the two of them risk everything as they embark on an illicit affair that could tear apart their unsuspecting families. When a risky late-night tryst goes awry and threatens to expose them, Sarah and Saleem look on helplessly as their frantic efforts to salvage what's left of their lives only escalates the situation, and it's not long before Saleem has the security services from both sides breathing down his neck. Caught up in the intrusiveness and dehumanisation of the occupying machinery and overwhelmed by social and political pressure, Sarah and Saleem find themselves trapped in a web of deceit that not even the truth is able to unravel. The Reports On Sarah And Saleem takes us into a world where it is all but impossible not to get caught up in politics. Beautifully filmed and directed with great precision, the film explores the many contrasts between East and West Jerusalem as well as the roads Sarah and Saleem take as they navigate between the two realities.
