Ruwayshed is the last vil­lage in Jordan before the Iraqi border. It’s no man’s land. This short doc­u­men­tary gives an insight into the lives of a few people who live there: the owner of a small bar and hotel, a few girls who work as ‘host­esses’, and a man sell­ing jerry cans of petrol at the road­side. When the police arrive, men and women scat­ter like a bunch of shooed away birds.
