Music and love triumph over war and tradition in this drama set in the dangerous borders and ghettos between Israel and Palestine. Oppressed Palestinian rapper Kareem and
his girlfriend Manar attempt to defy the government and express their emotions and thoughts through music, before facing off against malicious Jewish nationalists, the government and others.
Like the movie 8 Mile, Junction 48 gives the audience a powerful message of achieving peace through art and love, and how you should never give up when the going gets tough. The love between partners Manar and Kareem in this movie, brilliantly played by Tamer Nafar and Samar Qupty, resembles a rock that can’t be destroyed.
