Nimer, a Palestinian student, is dreaming of a better life abroad. One fateful night he meets Roy, an Israeli lawyer, and the two fall in love. As their relationship deepens, Nimer is confronted with the harsh realities of the Palestinian society that refuses to accept him for his sexual identity, and the Israeli society that rejects him for his nationality. When his close friend is caught hiding illegally in Tel-Aviv and sent back to the West Bank, where he is brutally murdered, Nimer must choose between the life he thought he wanted and his love for Roy.
