This bittersweet debut feature from Maysaloun Hamoud is an empowering tale of three strong, independent minded Israeli-Palestinian women sharing an apartment in Tel Aviv.
Away from the constraints of their families and enforced tradition, they find themselves ‘in between’ the free and unfettered lives they’re aspiring to lead and the restrictions still imposed on them by a the country and their families.
The three girls are rocked by a shocking series of events that will push their beliefs to the limit and change their lives forever whilst sealing the bond of friendship.
“Hamoud’s slyly subversive drama draws us deep into an often hidden world. As the title suggests, these women occupy a liminal space, caught between freedom and repression, religion and secularism, the past and the future." - MARK KERMODE
