Summary: Three young Israelis, two guys and a girl, share an apartment in Tel Aviv’s hippest neighborhood. As they try to put aside political conflicts and focus on their lives and loves, these progressive 20-somethings are often accused of living in an escapist “bubble”. Among them are three young Israeli flatmates: headstrong Lulu, who works in a bath products boutique, flamboyant Yali, who manages a trendy café, and brooding music store clerk Noam, who spends his weekends serving in the National Guard at checkpoints. When Noam meets and falls in love with a young Palestinian man named Ashraf, the young Israelis decide to help Ashraf stay on in Tel Aviv illegally. They dress him in modern Israeli garb, give him a Hebrew name and put him to work in Yali's café. They all decide to celebrate their peaceful coexistence at a beach party calling for an end to the occupation of Palestinian territories. But the young people's utopia is shattered by the political and social realities of the Middle East. (Strand Releasing)
