Synopsis

Jawdat, a young Israeli Arab, simply wants to hang out with his friends, spend hours chatting on his mobile phone and, above all, find love. But he has one failed date after another with Muslim, Christian and even Jewish girls while desperately trying to pass his Hebrew test to get into university and so leave his village. Things become complicated when Salem, his father, an olive farmer, asks him to join his campaign against the construction of an Israeli phone company antenna in an adjacent field that he suspects of irradiating the villagers…
