HaMa’azin

Listening In
He is young and works for Israeli military intelligence. On headphones, he listens in on the conversations of Palestinians. The phone calls of one gay couple in particular begin to fascinate him more and more. Privy to the complicated relationship between the two as it unfolds, he doesn’t know whether and, if so, in what way he should follow his feelings. For here, too, the private is political, and the most intimate things of all can lead to disaster.
