“Last Dance” follows the story of Sadiq Mohammad (Firass Dirani), a young radical Palestinian who, after fleeing from a failed suicide bombing of a synagogue, holds holocaust survivor Ulah Lippmann (Julia Blake) hostage , in her apartment. Desperately wounded, Sadiq hides in Ulah’s flat, planning his next move. As the police close in, Sadiq and Ulah are forced to confront their own pasts as their present collide.
Taut and confronting, “Last Dance” is a drama torn from today’s headlines but remains as universal as the human condition. It touches on issues of ideology, faith, freedom and oppression, but is also about the power of compassion and is, ultimately, the story of family and a mother's love.
