A docu-drama about the life of young Rajai, a Palestinian taxi-van driver who struggles every day to get passed roadblocks and barriers, over detours and shortcuts from East-Jerusalem to Ramallah and back again transporting passengers for three Shekels a trip. His point of view on the Intifada, the occupation, suicide attacks and life in general is mirrored to that of his passengers, ordinary people but also the politician Hanan Ashrawi, filmmaker BZ Goldberg and others.
