A film about forbidden love. The dancer, Jasmin, and the artist, Assi, are married. They have everything they could wish for. They are young, beautiful and in love. They aren¿t, however, allowed to live together. Outer forces do all they can to thwart their every attempt. They are forced to tackle threats, hate and violence. They live in the midst of the most talked about conflict in the world.
Jasmin is a Jewish Israeli from Jerusalem and Assi is a Muslim Palestinian from the West Bank.
We follow the couple for three years and experience, through their eyes, the personal and political conflicts that are connected with wishing to live together across religious and cultural borders.
