Salma and Leila are modern women, sharing an apartment and partying their way through life. When religious, conservative Nur shows up on their doorstep hoping to camp out in their spare room, none of the women are prepared for the effect they will have on each other’s lives.

Laila, a successful lawyer, is desired but can’t seem to find a man who is looking for anyone but a traditional Arab woman. Salma has parents who haven’t given up trying to set up their daughter with a good man, despite her perpetual rejection of every potential admirer. But when Salma meets a patron at her bar, perhaps the time has finally come to stop the charade. Meanwhile, Nur, whose fiancé has responded to her new friendships by trying to control every aspect of her life, must decide between what is expected of her and what she really wants.

In Between, Maysaloun Hamoud’s debut feature, focuses on the power of female friendship and examines how three women must band together to navigate the constraints of their traditional culture.
