Suicide of an angel



Two university students fall in love. They should not, because even in our times a young Arab (Aicha) cannot fall peacefully in love with a Jew (Ilan), and vice versa. The story happens not in Verona but in the ‘Petit théâtre de guerre’, in Paris. The wall that separates the two cultures puts pressure not only on the couple’s relationship, but even on Ilan’s mental health.
Inspired by true events.
