Editorial Review

"Precious Life" tells the story of Mohammad Abu Mustaffa, a four-month-old Palestinian boy from Gaza who was born without an immune system and requires a bone marrow transplant, which can only be done in an Israeli hospital. A desperate plea from his doctor leads Israeli journalist Shlomi Eldar to document this complex and touching story of Israeli and Palestinian doctors' attempt to save Mohammad's life. The film explores the challenges and prejudices that must be overcome when officials from conflicting nations attempt to put aside their differences for a noble cause.
