Synopsis
“O Jerusalem” re-creates the struggle surrounding the creation of the State of Israel in 1948. At the center of these events are two young American friends–one Jewish, the other Arab. The film is told from the alternating viewpoints of the Jews, Arabs, and British, all of whom collide in their fight for the control of Jerusalem. Their involvement takes them from the streets of New York to The Holy Land, where they risk their lives to fight for what they believe in, as the city of their dreams teeters on the brink of destruction. The film is based on historical accounts from the best-selling novel of the same name, written by Larry Collins and Dominique Lapierre.
