This film tells the story of an unlikely alliance: Israeli Yaakov Arnon, an ex-government official–turned–peace activist, and Mahmud Subah, an Arab actor and director, who does not believe in coexistence, join forces. Together they established a theater group for Jewish youths from Kibbutz Harduf and their Arab peers from the City of Shfaram. The troupe flies to England for 30 days of rehearsals there. But do they have a winning chance of staging the Brothers Grimm fairy tales in a London theater – and in English? This story, an incredible human journey, serves as the framework for “Chance,” which focuses on the back-story of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
