Living in the slums outside of Tel Aviv where Arabs and Jews freely commingle, Palestinian musician Kareem (Tamer Nafar) finds an escape from dead-end jobs, street hustling friends, and family tragedy through immersing himself in hip-hop culture, his increasing success leading to both an expansion of his political conscience and a more acute experience of political oppression and prejudice. A stirring story of the oppositional power of pop music, drawn from star Nafar’s real-life experiences.
