The Nasser brothers’ second feature film takes place in contemporary Gaza. At 60, Issa is a curmudgeonly, but secretly charming, solitary fisherman. He is in love with Sihma, a woman who works at the market, but he doesn’t have the courage to tell her. Until the day he discovers a phallic statue of the god Apollo and his life changes. A film that combines absurd comedy, magical realism and the spirit of Italian neo-realism in a unique recipe.
