“There are so many truths. Which one do you want?”
Rachel, a pre-med student from a Jewish family, doesn’t think much about Israel until she meets Michael, a Palestinian doctor in New York on a fellowship.
She is attracted to his strength and passion for helping his people. He sees her as a recruit to his cause. Drawn together by their differences, their unlikely romance will force them to confront pre-existing loyalties, and to uncover truths buried under a lifetime of lies.
