The film is Jaffa-based Palestinian director Maysaloun Hamoud’s feature debut. In Between is a story of three young Palestinian women sharing an apartment in Tel Aviv. Layla, a criminal lawyer, frequents the underground club scene with her roommate Salma a DJ and bartender. Nur, younger and religious, moves into their apartment to study at the nearby university. These three different women find themselves doing the same balancing act between tradition and modernity, citizenship and culture, fealty and freedom.
