They are the invisible ones, trapped between a world where they're seen as enemies and a home where their lives are in danger. Gay Palestinians who flee across the border to Israel are in a hopeless situation. Their only chance is to apply for asylum in a third country. The film accompanies 32-year old Louie who's been hiding in Tel Aviv for 8 years, Abdu who was tortured by the Palestinian security services and Faris who was almost killed by his own family because of his sexual orientation. The three-way portrait powerfully documents their heart-rending situation.
