Euni, The Book of Enemies is the moving story of Dori, a naïve 16 year old Jewish boy, a refugee who arrives in Palestine in the midst of a war and becomes a part of a commando unit fighting the Arab enemy.
One day he falls in love with Euni, a 15-year-old Arab girl, but her village is conquered and she flees with her family to Lebanon.
When Dori tries to find Euni, he gets entangled in an enigmatic drugs- smuggling intrigue, that takes him across borders in a Bond-like adventure. Through his journey to adulthood, Dori, brimful with confusion, vulnerability and sincerity, lets us witness his complete transformation as we discover with him, who the real enemy is.
Based on the author's personal experience.
