Three girls, one big city. The seemingly common situation is complicated by the fact that the girls are Palestinian citizens of Israel living in Tel Aviv. Leila is a promising lawyer by day and a party animal by night. Her roommate Salma is a lesbian from an ostensibly liberal Christian family, who works as a bartender and DJ. Their household is soon joined by Nour, a devoted Muslim approaching maturity, who wants to finish her studies before marrying her fiancé Wissam. But as their need for liberty grows, the shackles of society tighten. The girls are fighting for freedom of choice and control of their own life, but are the people closest to them ready to accept it?
