“The Last Enemy” tells the story of a group of nine Palestinian, Israeli and Jordanian actors who work on a play that was written especially for them by the American Playwright Jim Mirioene. It takes a closer look at Achsen, a Palestinian actress, who finds it difficult to fit into the group because of a painful personal experience that she had long repressed.
