Three young flatmates from Tel Aviv, two guys and a girl, try to put aside political conflicts and focus on their lives and loves, thus living in an escapist “bubble”. Headstrong Lulu works in a boutique, flamboyant Yali manages a trendy café, and music store clerk Noam spends his weekends serving in the National Guard at checkpoints. When Noam falls in love with Ashraf, a young Palestinian, they decide to help Ashraf staying illegally in Tel Aviv. They dress him in modern Israeli garb, give him a Hebrew name, put him to work in Yali's café and celebrate their peaceful coexistence at a beach party. But their utopia is shattered by the political and social realities of the Middle East.
