Two Arab-American women in New York City fall in love, argue home and identity, engage in a chess battle, and express themselves through the power of the spoken word.
Hal, an Arab-American poet belonging to the Palestinian diaspora in New York City, meets Moun, a free-spirited chess sales girl. Their brief love affair challenges their understanding of what makes home.
