After hearing a tour guide offer a sanitized version of his hometown’s history, Jerusalem native Ronen Matelon begins his own guiding tour. He takes tourists to infamous bombing sites from the 90s and 2000s and tells them the truth about life during these terrorist attacks. On one of his tours he meets Asia, an ex-Jerusalemite living in Barcelona, and their relationship challenges him to overcome his anxiety and heal from the trauma he’s experienced.
