O Paraíso, Agora!


Paradise Now is a film that follows the story of Palestinians Said and Khaled, who have been lifelong friends living in Nablus in the West Bank. They work as auto mechanics in a small garage, feeling unfulfilled in their jobs and lives.

They blame their difficult lives on the oppression by the Israelis and have volunteered to carry out a suicide bombing mission in Tel Aviv as part of a Palestinian resistance group. The plan involves detonating two bombs at the same site and releasing pre-taped video messages confessing to the bombing in the name of God.

The mission requires them to cross "illegally" into Israel, but they are not afraid of death as they believe it will give meaning to their lives. However, they end up being separated during the mission, which could jeopardize their lives and the mission itself.

During their time apart, Said and Khaled may have time to reflect on their actions, especially with Said developing a friendship/romance with a young woman named Suha. Suha, the daughter of a wealthy Palestinian, has recently moved back to the West Bank after years living overseas.
