Nimr, an ambitious Palestinian student in the West Bank, dreams of a better life. One fateful night in Tel Aviv, he meets Roy, an Israeli lawyer, and the two fall in love. As their relationship deepens, they are both confronted with the harsh realities of a Palestinian society that refuses to accept Nimr for his sexual identity, and an Israeli society that rejects him for his nationality. When Nimr's close friend is caught hiding illegally in Tel Aviv and sent back to the West Bank and a terrible fate, Nimr is forced to choose between the life he thought he wanted and his love for Roy.
