Nur moves into an apartment in the vibrant heart of Tel Aviv with Lalia and Salma, who frequent underground clubs and bars. When Nur’s conservative fiancé visits, he is horrified by her secular friends. He encourages her to leave Tel Aviv and assume her rightful role as a wife. When she refuses, his violent rebuttal leaves all of the women shaken. Lalia has found love with a modern Muslim man whose acceptance proves less than unconditional. Salma discovers that her Christian family is not as liberal as they claim. The dynamic roommates must strike a balance between tradition and modernity, citizenship and culture, fealty and freedom.
