Synopsis

Escapeland follows a love story that develops against-all-odds between Eshel, a young Israeli woman from a kibbutz and Adel, a Sudanese Muslim, a UN refugee, who is not allowed entry into Israel. The couple has two children, and for years now Eshel is forced to constantly travel between a remote beach in Sinai (Egypt) where Adel lives and works, and her mother's home in Kibbutz Ein-Shemer. The family shifts between hope for a future together, and despair about the economic and bureaucratic obstacles.
