Arabic, Hebrew with English subtitles

Two Palestinian women share an apartment in the vibrant heart of Tel Aviv. A stylish criminal lawyer with a wicked wit, Laila sheds her professional persona and releases any inhibitions in the city’s underground club scene. Her more subdued lesbian roommate Salma left her conservative Christian home and floats from job-to-job, working primarily as a bartender and DJ. They are joined by Nur, a religious Muslim, who moves into the apartment while studying at the local university. Her fiance refuses to understand why she prefers to study and work over establishing their househome. Together, the roommates search for ways to live in the space in between their desired modern lifestyles and the pressures from their traditional communities.
