  • Directed by Michael Mayer
  • Israel, 2012, 96 mins., Hebrew/Arabic/English

One night in Tel Aviv, Nimr, a Palestinian student, meets Roy, a young Israeli lawyer, and they fall in love. Being a gay Palestinian is not easy for Nimr, and despite Roy’s efforts, Israel refuses to grant Nimr citizenship and a haven from his unaccepting family. Both young men are faced with difficult choices and sacrifices to ensure their love will prevail. As we are caught up in their destinies, Mayer and the outstanding cast powerfully depict the human toll of this sad reality.
