Arab-Israeli filmmaker Maysaloun Hamoud’s debut film is a sparkling story of three young Palestinian women living in Israel. 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. Nur is both intrigued and intimidated by her two sophisticated roommates.
Away from the restraints of family and tradition, the women find themselves “in between” the restrictions imposed on them by society and the free and unfettered lives they aspire to lead.
