Michael (John Benjamin Hickey, The Good Wife) is in Tel Aviv to prepare for his latest New York Times travel story. Grieving a loss and away from his husband, he is eager to complete his assignment and get home. When he sublets an apartment from Tomer, a young film student who offers to show him around, he finds himself drawn into the life of the city. The two men are from different generations and have starkly differing points of view yet they form an undeniable connection that will transform both of their lives in unexpected ways.
