Leila (Mouna Hawa), a high-powered criminal lawyer, and her roommate, Salma (Sana Jammelieh), an aspiring DJ who works in a restaurant kitchen, seem indistinguishable at first from any other ambitious young Tel Aviv residents. Fluent in both Arabic and Hebrew, they work hard and play hard, spending their nights partying in an underground Palestinian club scene. Sure, they have to deal with anti-Palestinian attitudes at times, even in the leftleaning Tel Aviv bubble, but most of the time they are confident, even tough. Leila grew up Muslim, while Salma’s family is Christian, but both of them are fiercely secular.

When Noor (Shaden Kanboura ), a new roommate shows up, we begin to see the cracks in their facade. Noor, who comes from a village, is religious and wears a hijab. An organized, neat computer science student, her only social life is the visits from her equally traditional fiance, Wissam (Henry Andrawes). But unlike her roommates, Noor seems to know exactly what she wants and exactly where she is going. Soon, Noor’s exposure to Leila and Salma changes her and creates conflict between her and her fiance...
