WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Poet Bev Hemmings is in the eye of a storm after she publishes a poem that the world seems to believe is anti-Semitic. She's convinced she's innocent, but everyone else - including her PA, Tamsin - wants her to apologise. A press interview is planned to begin her public rehabilitation, but Bev's erratic behaviour, exacerbated by drink and a dying father, make her public contrition a complex process. ?Checkpoint Chana examines the point where pro-Palestinian criticism of the government of Israel and anti-Semitism blur.
