When devout university student Nour moves in with successful lawyer Laila and club DJ Salma, she is shocked by their partying. As Laila fights to retain her freedom in the face of a new relationship, Salma falls for beautiful trainee doctor Dounia, a romance she must hide from her family. Nour is set for an arranged marriage to Wissam, an exemplary member of the community, who may not be as respectable as he appears.

IN BETWEEN follows the lives of these strong, independent minded Palestinian-Israeli women in Tel Aviv. Away from the constraints of their families and enforced tradition, they find themselves ‘in between’ the free and unfettered lives they aspire to lead and the restrictions imposed on them by a blinkered society.

“It’s a film in which you really believe in the characters; You really believe in their situations; They’re lively and vibrant and totally engaging and it’s a film which thrums with life, thrums with the possibility of life and also an understanding of the structures of life. It’s called In Between, and I would recommend anyone to go and see it because I thought it was really terrific.”  Mark Kermode – Radio Five Live
