Synopsis
Lulu lives with two gay guys, brooding music lover Noam and flamboyant cafe owner Yali. The roommates' days and nights are spent in typical slacker fashion--hanging out, watching TV, getting laid. They are secular and progressive, but not overly political. Everything changes when Noam meets Ashraf, a cute and intense Palestinian guy, at a checkpoint. Noam is on reserve duty and Ashraf is helping a woman forced to give birth at the roadside--not the best circumstances for a meeting, but something connects them. When Ashraf shows up at Noam's apartment, a powerfully erotic love affair begins. Ashraf becomes part of their group, while Lulu and Yali also fall dramatically in and out of love. One almost believes that the two men could inspire change as symbols of peace, but their affair is already doomed. The awful violence of life outside the bubble envelops them, gradually making their affair one of painful, tragic irony.
