Tarek, a young Palestinian man blackmailed into a suicide mission in Tel Aviv, is given a second chance at life when the fuse on his explosive vest fails to detonate. Forced to spend the weekend in Tel Aviv awaiting its repair, Tarek must live amongst the people he was planning to kill. To his surprise he connects with several Israelis on the outskirts of society, including the beautiful Keren, who has cut off contact with her Orthodox Jewish family. With nothing to lose, an unlikely love blooms between these two isolated and damaged individuals, raised to be enemies. While spending time with Keren, Tarek discovers the spark of life returning to fill his soul, but when the weekend ends, he must make the decision of his life.
