Two brothers live in an Israeli settlement on the edge of Gaza. One brother has been divorced for 13 years, while the other hides out from his wife and kids. Spending most of their time together in the scrap yard they own, Hula and Natan fix the occasional automobile and sell parts from stripped cars to neighbors on both sides of the border. Threatened with constant eviction by the authorities, the brothers are also permanently locked in battle with each other—over dinner shared with cats, over who owns what, but mostly over nothing of much importance. As epithets fly across the cluttered room, Qassam rockets and fighter jets fly overhead. Hula has sympathy for the Palestinians—“I know Arabs. They have honor.”—while Natan cheats them—“If an Arab comes in, I’ll stick him with it.” Neither brother forgets for a minute that they all live on contested ground.
