As internal battles fracture the Palestinian Territories, WIDE ANGLE provides a glimpse inside the conflict as it spirals out of control. In July 2006, seven months after the militant movement Hamas' landslide election victories, the largest hospital in the Gaza Strip became a battlefield. Gaza E.R. follows doctors, nurses, and staff at Shifa Hospital as they struggle in the face of turf wars among Hamas, rival faction Fatah, and powerful families with competing agendas.
Gunfights, medical shortages, and disappearing salaries are a daily reality in this gripping portrait of the troubled Palestinian landscape.
