Roy and Nimir are smitten after a meeting in a Tel Aviv gay bar. Israeli Roy is out to his family, but Palestinian Nimir comes from a conservative village where gay men and suspected Israeli informants are dispensed with vigilante justice from a group of thugs headed by Nimir's brother Nabil, who is also hiding weapons in the family home. When the Israeli secret service tries, and fails, to blackmail Nimir into collaboration, they revoke his permit to enter Israel, ending his studies and destroying his dreams of a PhD. At the same time his family discovers his homosexuality and disowns him, leaving him no one to turn to but Roy.
