Content In the second half of the 12th century a Muslim leader of Kurdish origin appeared in the East. His name was Sallah el-Din Alayobe (Salladin). He succeeded in uniting the divided Muslim-Arab state and conquered the crusaders in Palestine, releasing Jerusalem from their rule. His name was immortalised in the history of the Arabs and turned the symbol of the expected leader. East-Jerusalem in the year 2000 - a constant state of waiting. The film portraits four people in Jerusalem in their day-to-day life and delivers images of a reality, which is far away from the action-scenes of Western TV-broadcasts.
