The Bubble 2007
description written by member Zara:
Three young Israelis, two guys and a girl, share an apartment in Tel Aviv's hippest neighborhood: headstrong Lulu, who works in a bath products boutique; flamboyant Yali, who manages a trendy café and brooding music store clerk Noam, who spends his weekends serving at checkpoints in the National Guard.

But ultimately, their carefully constructed utopia is shattered by the political and social realities of the Middle East, and the constant outbursts of violence.
