A female director wants to shoot a film describing an encounter between an Israeli woman and a Palestinian man. She calls a Palestinian actor for an audition. The idea of drinking coffee enrolls a meeting point between two strangers, a chance to get close, to get intimate. What are the boundaries of an audition? Where does “reality” start, and where does the “movie” end? Where does the border cross between fiction and life itself, and where is the barrier between a character and an identity?
