The Idol

The contentious Gaza Strip is the setting for this idealistic musical drama (based on a real story) about a brother and sister who grow up dreaming of getting their neighborhood band on stage at the world-famous Cairo Opera Hall. Years later, when auditions for "Arab Idol" are announced, young Mohammed (Tawfeek Barhom) sees a path to his lifelong dream. But how can he get across the closed border to perform? In Arabic with English subtitles. 100 minutes Unrated.
