My three gay brothers may you live your life fully happy. For my other gay brothers who are Palestinian and seek asylum in Jerusalem,my wish for you is to be safe at all times and knowing that they are other brothers and sisters who are praying with you tonight in our small world.

I absolutely loved that movie/documentary. Especially with all the immigration news or lack of news that is taking place, makes this movie even more relevant. A great heart breaking story beautifully told. I cried my heart out, and just loved it. Very moving and unforgettable.

An eye-opener for me. Each viewer who responds to this documentary should call attention to it with a letter to the editor in any newspaper, should spread the word about it. We should not allow "the lack of news" that Sanda S. correctly comments to remain such a gaping hole in our consciousness.

This short film is precise in its social and geographical details; moving in its focus on three individually articulate gay men who are, each in his own way, eloquent in word, expression, and gesture; significant even beyond the personal crisis it presents, because it also documents the negative pressures on the film makers.

This film has been protested by many, many, LGBT Palestinians! The film portrays Israel as a haven for LGBT Palestinians in order to distract from the reality of the violence that Israel continues to enact against all Palestinians, LGBT included. Homophobic and transphobic violence is still going strong in Tel Aviv, and many LGBT Palestinians are offended by this film's portrayal of Palestine as a more dangerous place for LGBT people. If you want more information, look up LGBT Palestinian activist group "al-Qaws" and "Israeli Pinkwashing".

It is too real but then it is a documentary so That is the way it was and there is hope among them that it will get more just.

such brave men and the people helping them. very touching. a reminder that truth and freedom can be a life or death decision. and a lonely decision.

Excellent. It's the story of gay Arabs in Tel Aviv, but it's a universal story. Jay A
