Nimr, a Palestinian psychology student, meets Roy, an Israeli lawyer, in a Tel Aviv disco one night. The two handsome, young men are an obvious match in Out In The Dark directed by Michael Mayer (Israel) 2012.
Over time they develop a romantic relationship. But the political circumstances and continuing hostilities between Arabs and Jews threaten to tear them apart.
While Roy lives a relatively comfortable life as a discreet gay male in Tel Aviv, Nimr must remain totally closeted in Ramallah.
Their friend Mustafa, who flaunts his effeminacy, pays dearly for his behavior. The security forces that enforce the separation soon turn their attention to Nimr, who must run for his life with or without Roy’s help.
