Three women with different religious background meets as roommates in the heart of Tel Aviv. Salma is a DJ at a bar while Laila is an attorney and they’re both trying to find their identity in their own way. When Nur, a younger muslim girl, moves in, things start to change. Across their differences, the three girls find a deep relationship.
In Between deals with the tension between the family’s traditional and deeply religious expectations and the night life of Tel Aviv and how young Israeli-Arabic women navigate the contrasts of not being Israeli nor Palestinian enough to fit in.
Director Maysaloun Hamoud was awarded the New Directors Award during Kosmorama 2017. In Between premieres in Norwegian cinemas July 14th, 2017.
