Three young Israelis, two guys and a girl, share an apartment in Tel Aviv's hippest neighborhood. Trying to put aside political conflicts and focusing on their lives and loves, these progressive 20-somethings are often accused of living in a sort of escapist bubble. While on army reserve duty at a West Bank checkpoint, music store clerk Noam (Ohad Knoller) crosses paths with Ashraf (Yousef Sweid), a Palestinian guy. When they meet again in Tel Aviv, no cultural taboo can hold back their sexual attraction... But their good times are soon challenged by the harsh reality of the region's ongoing violence. Directed and co-written by Eytan Fox (Walk on Water, Yossi & Jagger).
