Almost ten thousand Palestinians have been imprisoned in Israeli jails on "security" charges to date. For most Israelis they are assassins and criminals. For most Palestinians they are heroes and freedom fighters. Shot inside various Israeli prisons, Hot House provides a unique opportunity to observe events of historic proportions, while shattering the two-dimensional stereotypes and the often polarizing commentary presented by the mainstream media on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
