NOTE: all screenings at this venue are 19+.

Nadia Kabir is a 20 year-old Arab young woman who has just graduated from the Jewish-Arab girls’ school in Jerusalem. She is having a secret love affair with Nimer, an activist in a Palestinian Liberation Movement. When Nimer is sent to England on assignment, they are secretly married. In England, Nadia realizes the meaning of the step she has taken – severing her ties with her family and beloved mother, as she embraces a life of exile and escape. When Nimer is caught by the authorities, Nadia is left on her own. She realizes that there is no option of returning to Israel; the authorities see her as a terrorist.
