Two girls meet in the “cloud”.

Samar, 12, lives in Lod, a mixed city marred by poverty and crime. She has an Arab Israeli mother and a Palestinian father from the Occupied Territories.

Linor, 11, lives in Tlamim, a religious Jewish settlement.

There are only 67 km between Lod and Tlamim, but the girls are separated by a vast national, cultural and ideological abyss. As participants in an education and technology program, their relationship starts from online correspondence. Meeting face-to-face adds an intense component to the two girls’ lives, sweeping them and their families into a profound and complex experience.
