Plot Summary
When is the price of safety too high? How about when it disrupts one's way of life or makes existence into a prison? In this documentary, the filmmakers chronicle the building of an enormous wall designed to keep the Palestinian sections of Israel apart, while considering repercussions -- including those political, social and environmental. Interviews center around government officials and those living near the wall, with the barrier occasionally looming in the frame like its own character.

  • Coming and going through the wall's checkpoints is a tiresome and undignified process that makes US airport security look like a cocktail reception. show more
