The signing of the Oslo Peace Accord in 1993 sparked worldwide hope for a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Checkpoint takes a critical look at this peace agreement and its aftermath. With offbeat humor, warmth and insight, it offers an unorthodox appraisal you won't hear from network soundbites.

This engaging documentary explores recent events—the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Rabin; the Palestinian takeover of West Bank towns; the first Palestinian elections; suicide bus bombings; Arafat's abuse of power; the growing frustration among Palestinians—that seem to herald a collapse of the historic agreement reached at Oslo. Palestinians and Israelis speak of the contest over Jerusalem, Israeli settlement expansion, the forgotten refugees, and their visions of a just peace.
