A dramatic virtual encounter between a Jewish and an Arab girls leads to a surprising, exciting, and stressful experience. Two girls meet through a digital educational project in Israel. Samar’s father comes from the (Palestinian) Occupied Territories. Linor’s family was evacuated from a Jewish settlement. Only 67 kilometres apart, yet an ideological gulf stands between them. The girls meet and an instant bond is struck. Nevertheless, reality overpowers the friendship.
