Synopsis

Middle Eastern-set road movie from director Amos Gitai. Attempting to leave behind the memories of a failed relationship, Rebecca (Natalie Portman), an American Jew, joins Hanna (Hanna Laszlo), a middle aged Israeli, in her search for her injured husband's business partner, 'The American' (Makhram Koury), who owes Hanna's husband a large sum of money. The search takes the women on an onerous journey from Jerusalem to the titular Free Zone of Jordan. At their destination they meet Leila (Hiam Abbass), a Palestinian woman who claims to know the whereabouts of the elusive debtor.
