While the entire cast is aces, the three leads, and the chemistry among them, are especially fine; they poignantly convey the sense of living “in between” and the toll that it takes on their lives.

Lalia, Salma, and Nur share an apartment in the vibrant heart of Tel Aviv. Lalia, a criminal lawyer with a wicked wit, loves to burn off her workday stress in the underground club scene. Salma, slightly more subdued, is a DJ and bartender. Nur is a younger, religious Muslim girl who moves into the apartment in order to study at the university. Yet despite their differences, the three women find themselves balancing tradition and modernity, citizenship and culture, fealty and freedom.
Prior to the screening Students for Justice in Palestine at University of South Carolina will speak about the representations of gender, female experience, and friendship in the film.
