Laila's Birthday (Eid milad Laila)
Drama
 
A taxi-driving judge attempts to keep his promise to return home with a birthday cake for his young daughter while contending with everyday life in occupied territory and doing his best to keep unruly passengers in check. Abu Laila is a judge, though despite being invited to practice in Palestine bureaucracy has prevented him from procuring his papers. Today is his daughter's birthday, and if he can somehow maintain his sanity amidst the chaos of the outside world he plans to buy her a cake so they can celebrate later that evening. Cigarettes are banned from Abu's cab, as are AK-47s. And while contending with the occupiers harass him at every turn is no easy task, Abu's greatest challenge is often convincing his passengers to buckle their seatbelts.~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide Rated No Rating .
