Seventeen-year-old Tal has emigrated from France to Jerusalem with her family. She writes a letter expressing her refusal to accept that only hatred can reign between Israelis and Palestinians. She slips the letter into a bottle, and her brother throws it into the sea near Gaza, where he is carrying out his military service. A few weeks later, Tal receives an e-mail response from a mysterious 'Gazaman', a young Palestinian named Naim. Thus begins a turbulent but tender long-distance friendship.

The film gives us a view of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through the eyes and experiences of two teenagers. They don't live all that far apart, maybe 50 miles, but they might as well be on different planets. This movie could easily lead to some heated discussions.
