Terek, a young Palestinian on a suicide mission in Tel Aviv, is forced to spend the weekend there, befriending several Israelis. Among them is Keren, who has cut off contact with her Orthodox family and upbringing. With nothing to lose, Terek and Keren open up to one another, and an unlikely bond forms between two isolated and damaged individuals, raised to be enemies.
