Anat Shelach, an Israeli kibbutznik, and Rola Srouji, a Palestinian woman from Ramallah, met while working for competing logistics companies. When they decide to join forces and create a business that expedites transportation of cargo to the West Bank, they are faced with resistance from their families, friends, and communities. Strong-willed and competent, the women work against opposition, even in the face of the Gaza war, to establish a successful business — and a deep friendship.
