The Israeli Ministry of Education decided to ban from the school program a book describing an affair between a jewish woman and an arab man. So TimeOut Tel Aviv have decided to ask jews and arabs to meet and to kiss. Six couples of jews and arabs – male and female, gay and straight – have decided to do the “forbidden deed” and express love in front of our camera. Some of them were couples, some just friends, some have never met prior to the shoot. Jews and arabs refuse to be enemies.
