    • Nadia is a 20 year old Arab woman conducting a secret love affair with Nimer, a PLO activist. They move to England where Nimer is caught by the authorities and Nadia is left alone. A shady character provides her with the Israeli passport of a young Jewish woman that enables her to return to Israel.
      Twenty years later Nadia is now Maya, a successful choreographer married to Yoav, a Jewish official at the Ministry of Justice. They have two children. When Nimer reappears in Jerusalem, her past catches her up. Yoav, notices his wife's distress, and realizes she is hiding something. Nadia is forced to deal with her identity conflict against the backdrop of the region's political conflict.
