200 Meters Summary and Synopsis

Mustafa, a Palestinian construction worker, lives 200 meters away from his wife Salwa and their children in villages separated by the Israeli border wall. Though his family are all Israeli citizens, Mustafa refuses to obtain a permit to live with them. Unwilling to succumb to what he believes are unjust laws, he instead uses his work permit to visit daily. However, one day he gets a call every parent dreads: his son has been injured and brought to the hospital. Rushing to cross the Israeli checkpoint, Mustafa is denied on a technicality. Stopping at nothing to reach his child, a 200 meter distance becomes a 200 kilometer odyssey, as the increasingly desperate Mustafa attempts to smuggle himself to the other side of the wall. Featuring a magnetic central performance by Ali Suliman, Ameen Nayfeh’s debut feature film expertly casts “one man’s story as a reflection of a collective experience” (Variety) while maintaining the tender family drama at its core.
