Gaza Mon Amour is a satire about love, repressed love and life battling absurdity. Comfortable in his life as a single 60-year-old, Issa ignores attempts by his sister to find a wife. Seemingly not interested in relationships, Issa is secretly in love with Siham, a dressmaker working at the local market. When he finally musters the courage to propose, he finds a statue of a naked Apollo in his net and takes it home under the cover of darkness. However, Apollo loses his most prominent member and troubles begin. A series of comical events will force Issa to step out of his shell and shed light on the Kafkaesque bureaucracy of life under occupation. Will Issa fulfil his plan and declare his love for Siham?
