In Fatenah, a new Palestinian animation, the heroine flunks the security check and is not allowed to enter Israel for treatment.

The film is inspired by the story of a Gazan woman whose battle against breast cancer included fighting inept Palestinian doctors and indifferent Israeli soldiers.

It was documented in a report by the Israeli branch of Physicians for Human Rights after she died in 2004.

Director Ahmad Habash said he used animation to make the grim subject more appealing.
