A nighttime journey, high walls, rope-climbing, barbed wire fences, fear of arrest, and even a mortal threat – these are some of the obstacles on the paths of Palestinians who work illegally inside Israel. This film follows the journeys of a group of Palestinian construction workers on their journeys to their workplaces in the Jewish neighbourhood of Har Homa, which is being built in East Jerusalem as a Jewish enclave amid Palestinians lands and neighbourhoods. The film “Nine to Five” is a part of the “Jerusalem Moments 2009” Project.
