In present-day Tel Aviv, three young women strive for independence against the odds. When hijab-wearing Nour takes the spare room in their flat, she’s initially startled by the lifestyles of lawyer Layla and chef/DJ Salma, but as the hypocrisy of her fiance Wisam is revealed, she comes to value their friendship.
Layla hopes to combine professional and romantic life on her own terms, while lesbian Salma needs to keep up appearances with her conservative Christian family. This compelling and groundbreaking portrayal of modern Arab-Israeli life has caused shockwaves in its homeland and won deservedly huge praise from worldwide audiences.
