Samir and Yonatan

By Daniella Carmi, Yael Lotan (Translator)

When Samir, a Palestinian boy, enters an Israeli hospital for surgery, the initial fear and antagonism he feels is mitigated by his bond with Yonatan, an Israeli. Their relationship grows as they face their own physical and emotional trials.
