In the gripping drama The Attack, Amin Jaafari (Ali Suliman) is an Israeli Palestinian surgeon, fully assimilated into Tel Aviv society. He has a loving wife (Reymonde Amsellem, Lebanon), an exemplary career, and many Jewish friends. But his picture-perfect life is turned upside down when a suicide bombing in a restaurant leaves nineteen dead, and the Israeli police inform him that his wife Sihem, who also died in the explosion, was responsible. Convinced of her innocence, Amin abandons the relative security of his adopted homeland and enters the Palestinian territories in pursuit of the truth. Once there, he finds himself in ever more dangerous places and situations, seeking answers to questions he never thought he would be asking. Written and directed by Ziad Doueiri (Lila Says, West Beirut), and winner of Special Mention of the Jury at the San Sebastián International Film Festival, The Attack is adapted from Yasmina Khadra's award-winning international bestseller of the same name.
