Sayed Gouda’s Closed Gate juxtaposes life in Beijing with the sufferings of Palestine. The sufferings of Gaza are experienced in snatches, dreams, and traumatic flashes of sudden prose, as if to suggest that here is a drama that is not concluded – as it surely isn’t.

Cairo, 1948. Two families lay claim to a plot of land on which they share a house. The ruthless master of El-Wehda Street takes the side of Musa against El-Arabi, and an honest man dies defending his shop. Three generations live through conflict, celebration, betrayal, murder and, finally, love… 

Amina cannot blind her sons to the beauty of Delilah’s daughters, but do they have the right to love if justice does not prevail? Can Safwat rise above 'an eye for an eye'? Will he choose peace -- or seek a just revenge?
