Eyad, who grew up in an Arab town in Israel, is given the chance to go to a prestigious Jewish boarding school in Jerusalem. The first and only Arab to be accepted there, he desperately tries to fit in with his Jewish schoolmates. After falling in love with a Jewish girl named Naomi, Eyad has to leave school when their relationship is discovered, forcing the realization that he will have to sacrifice his identity in order to be accepted. Faced with a difficult choice, Eyad will make a decision that will change his life forever. “Eran Riklis’ (The Syrian Bride, Lemon Tree) strongest film in years!”—Variety. In Hebrew and Arabic with English subtitles.
