"Three young women sharing an apartment in central Tel Aviv" sounds like the pitch for a predictable romantic comedy. But these three women are Arab Israelis and the director is a Palestinian Israeli woman, so there will be nothing predictable. Laila is a confident lawyer, a secular Muslim who loves to party. Salma, a Christian seemingly destined for an arranged marriage with a mama’s boy, is a nightclub DJ who discovers her love for another woman. Noor is a conservative Muslim woman dressed in a hijab, studying computer science, and already engaged to a successful Muslim man, but her views will change as she discovers her own voice.
