A Gaza Weekend
Poster - A Gaza Weekend

Israel is cut off from the rest of the world after the outbreak of a deadly virus. Gaza is the safest place now, and Israelis are desperately trying to seek refuge there, including British journalist Michael and his Israeli girlfriend Keren. The couple pay a pair of smugglers to transport them out, via Gaza. However, they find themselves stuck in a basement in Gaza, with Hamas on their trail, and their lives in the hands of hapless Palestinian market traders Emad and Waleed, and Waleed's long-suffering but resourceful wife Nuhad.
