Five nuns living in the West Bank find their routine disrupted when the car of a family of Israeli settlers breaks down outside the convent.

SHOK (Directed by Jamie Donoughue)

EVERYTHING WILL BE OKAY (ALLES WIRD GUT) (Directed by Patrick Vollrath)
Michael, a divorced father devoted to his eight-year-old daughter, Lea, picks her up for their usual weekend together. At first it feels like a normal visit, but Lea soon realizes that something is different, and so begins a fateful journey.
STUTTERER (Directed by Benjamine Cleary and Serena Armitage)
For a lonely typographer, an online relationship has provided a much-needed connection without revealing the speech impediment that has kept him isolated. Now, however, he is faced with the proposition of meeting his online paramour in the flesh, and thereby revealing the truth about himself.
DAY ONE (Directed by Henry Hughes)
On the heels of a painful divorce, an Afghan-American woman joins the U.S. military as an interpreter and is sent to Afghanistan. On her first mission, she accompanies troops pursuing a bomb-maker, and must bridge the gender and culture gap to help the man’s pregnant wife when she goes into labor.
