Layla, Salma and Nour – three Palestinian women with Israeli citizenship – share an apartment in the vibrant centre of Tel Aviv. Despite being ‘independent,’ each of them struggles with the restrictions imposed on their lives by a blinkered society. Maysaloun Hamoud’s remarkable feature debut, explores the challenges facing young Arab-Israeli women who must negotiate being ‘in between’ cultures and traditions.
