Maysaloun Hamoud’s remarkable debut feature follows three strong and independent-minded Palestinian women who share an apartment in Tel Aviv. Away from the constraints of their families and tradition, they find themselves “in between” the free and unfettered lives they are aspiring to lead and the restrictions still imposed on them by society. Eventually, a shocking series of events will push these brave women to the limits and change their lives forever, while also sealing their bond of friendship.
