Capturing not only a raw, tender intimacy but also the growing claustrophobia and danger of a life in the shadows, this powerful, award-winning feature debut by LA-based Israeli director Michael Mayer is a compelling portrayal of love between barriers, and of a man facing insurmountable odds on his journey to experience it. Palestinian student Nimr's dreams of a better life abroad come into sharp focus when he meets Roy, an Israeli lawyer, and the two men fall in love. As the relationship deepens, Nimr is confronted with the harsh realities of a Palestinian society that refuses to accept him for his sexual identity, and an Israeli society that rejects him for his nationality. When a close friend is brutally murdered as a suspected collaborator, Nimr finds himself forced to choose between the life he thought he wanted, and his love for Roy.
