Smadar and Mirit, both 18 years old, are assigned to patrol the streets of Jerusalem together, as part of their military service. They are assigned to detain any Palestinian who pass by, check their papers, and register their details in special forms. However, the two young girls are immersed in the tidbits of their own lives—their romantic crushes, their break-ups, and the multifaceted relationship evolving between the two of them.

Until one day, Jerusalem’s political reality is forced upon them.
