Amin is a Palestinian prisoner who has been incarcerated in a military detention center for the past eighteen years. Avner is an Israeli prison guard in the detention center, who is about to retire. He has been guarding Amin throughout his incarceration. Over the years, a complex relationship has gradually developed between the two.
Following a peace agreement the Israelis and Palestinians are about to reach, hundreds of Palestinian prisoners are soon to be released, including Amin.
