Why Hast Thou Forsaken Me

Muhammad, a rejected Palestinian boy from the fringe of society, floats through the
streets of a filthy city, exposed and desolated, until he meets Gurevich; a lone rover who
rides his motorcycle into the bowels of the city, through the shadows of the back alleys,
sharpening the knives of butcher shops and gourmet restaurants. Stubborn and tenacious,
the boy forces his way under the man`s wing. Within this hypnotic urban hell, what starts
as an unstable and hesitant apprenticeship evolves into a struggle for self-control.
