On this interview, he is also joined by Yasmine Qaddumi, who plays one of the main roles of the film. Topic of this interview include the theme of imprisonment, the blurring of reality and an imagined reality in the film, and more.

Screwdriver: After fifteen years of imprisonment, Ziad struggles to adjust to modern Palestinian life as the hero everyone hails him as. Unable to distinguish reality from hallucination, he unravels and forces himself to go back to where it all began.
