Spherical short western from Lebanon, about a cow trapped between two worlds.


An unsuspecting cow crosses the landmine-covered border between Lebanon and Israel. She is welcomed by a poor family, but the mayor of the village is not amused by a spying Israeli cow. He wants to make an example out of the animal and asks the landowner to slaughter it. UN soldiers arrive just in time to save her life; they want to take the cow back to Israel. But she’s not welcome there anymore.
