Qassamba is a film written and directed by Yair Orbach, a student at Sapir College near Sderot. The movie uses black humor to raise many questions about life in the shadows of the Qassam missiles.
Yossi is a third year student in the Sapir College near Sderot. One day, Yossi meets Michal in a shelter during a “Color Red" alarm and he falls in love. The problem is that Michal rarely visits Yossi's Campus. Yossi realizes that he will only be able to see her again if he arranges another "Color Red" alarm during Michal's visits, therefore, Yossi and his roomate Simon close a deal with two Hamas activists.
Unexpectedly, it turns out that almost everyone in the campus, has an interest in having a "Color Red" alarm at a certain point in time, including the college principal!
The love story between Yossi and Michal leads to an upside-down world in which Qassam rockets play a positive role…
