Synopsis:
Kareem leads an aimless life between odd jobs and hanging out with his buddies in a crime-ridden Arab ghetto of the mixed city of Lyd. A family tragedy brings him closer to his singer girlfriend, Manar, and motivates him to do something more with his life. When Kareem finally gets a chance to perform in a Tel Aviv hip-hop club, the star potential of the "first Arab rapper" is quickly noticed. Although he raps "I'm not political", Kareem and the group use music to express their tough life as Palestinian youth. But the road to success is never easy... Kareem must face violent nationalistic Jewish rappers, government-imposed gentrification and troubled drug-dealing friends.
When Manar's family threatens to harm them if she performs publicly with him, the time comes for Kareem to either surrender to conservative tradition or stand up for the woman he loves, the artist he respects...
