Nimr experiences a double exclusion: from Palestinian society because of his homosexuality, from Israeli society because of his nationality. A cross-border love story.
The handsome student Nimr (Nicholas Jacob) dreams of a better life abroad. When he meets the very attractive young lawyer Roy (Michael Aloni) on a fateful night, it is love at first sight. But the harsh realities of a Palestinian society, condemning homosexuality and the neighboring country of Israel, despising him for his nationality, force Nimr to choose between life and love.

OUT IN THE DARK is a gripping and convincing feature debut; tender and exciting, sensual and exciting at the same time. In Mayer's safe hands the drama pulsates with urgency, longing and raw feeling."" (hollywoodreporter. com)
