Lost in Hope

A Film by Aline Hochscheid

Synopsis

Using a poetically lyrical dialogue, “Lost In Hope” tells the story of the Israeli Rachel and the Palestinian Yasser. Yasser yearns to live in freedom, away from the hopelessness and violence in his country. Rachel dreams of studying music, but must complete her military service beforehand. Both are ready to leave their home country for their beliefs, ready to break with social conventions and what is expected of them. To break new ground instead of walking the beaten path takes courage and a strong will. Unfortunately their respective futures are shaped by the conflict in their countries. One´s fate influences the fate of the other.
