A feature documentary about three gay Palestinian friends


The film follows the lives of three gay Palestinian friends confronting their national and sexual identity in Tel Aviv.
Shader is a Tel Aviv “darling” from a prominent muslim mafia family living with his Jewish boyfriend, David, and their dalmatian, Otis. Fade is an ardent Palestinian nationalist who finds himself falling in love with an Israeli zionist. Naim must confront his family with the truth about his sexuality. All three are conflicted by their desire for change in the face of a seemingly hopeless situation. 

Determined to “change their reality,” the three best friends form a group called “Qambuta,” a non-violent, cultural resistance movement fighting for gender and national equality. Through their activism, they address what it means to grow up with the burden of a multi-faceted identity.
