“Strong, wise and personal. An important and incisive film.” -MIFF

As Israeli society slips into extremism, an Arab actor and a Jewish journalist search for a place where they can belong. Ghassan Abbas was once a TV star. Director Shlomi Eldar was once the Arab Affairs’ correspondent for a news program. Both men had discovered that their audiences were getting smaller. Abbas was not getting new roles while Eldar’s reports were pushed to the sidelines. Facing a professional crisis, the two friends have begun searching for a new path.
