In the train on the way to the Festival in Vesoul, filmmakers Amos Gitai and Elia Suleiman talk about the subjects that preoccupy them: war and peace in the Middle East, their film projects, their cities, their private lives... In Vesoul, the French welcome is rather comical and the questions of war and peace in the Middle East create misunderstandings: through a kind of inverted exoticism, we end up wondering who is really the "stranger" in this story.
