A reconstruction of life within the Palestinian diaspora through the eyes of a newlywed couple torn apart by political turmoil. Kamar and Zaid’s honeymoon is short-lived when Zaid is arrested by Israeli forces for refusing to give up land in the occupied territories. Amid the turmoil, dancer Kamar is paired with Kais, a Palestinian returnee, and their natural chemistry simmers during a passionate, emotional dance. Kamar's life is thrown into turmoil as she becomes increasingly attracted to Kais, caught in the midst of her desire to dance and breaking the family and society taboos of the prisoner's wife's role.
