Kareem leads an aimless life between odd jobs and hanging out with his buddies in a crime-ridden Arab ghetto of the mixed Israeli city of Lyd. A family tragedy brings him closer to his singer girlfriend, Manar, and motivates him to do something more with his life. When Kareem and his group finally get a chance to perform in a Tel Aviv hip-hop club, the star potential of the 'first Arab rapper' is quickly noticed. But the road to success is never easy.

A Powerful Story! It is Heartfelt and will touch u deeply! Manar's voice, the female lead, is very beautiful and melodic! I could listen to her whole day! Mixing her voice with the male rappers', (both have deepfelt words) is effective, appealing to different ages! What I like about this movie is how realistic it is, unsanitized, dealing with up and downs in a difficult part of town and painful circumstances! No glossing over, nor idolizing here! It has real depth, and we get to know the community, this family and their friends well! Yet, it is very watchable, not overly negative, and manages to interject some humour and hope! Well-balanced!
They could easily make Part 2, as groundwork is made, and the story has a real potential!
The subtitles are a bit small!
I highly Recommend this movie!
