Boaz and George meet on Grindr. One is in Israel, the other in Lebanon. They’re horny but can’t meet physically. Something in their conversation excites them. The distance, the “enemy”, the foreignness, the experience of being gay in another culture. They both fill a void the other has, becoming each other’s secret love. As they decide to meet in Berlin, the border between the countries heats up, and they’re forced to make difficult decisions.

Inspired by a real encounter between the Israeli writer and a Lebanese man on Grindr, Borders is a story about two people, never meant to meet, who try to form an intimate relationship against all odds. Scripted very delicately with a touch of humour, it addresses the many complexities of the Middle East reality in which the geopolitical circumstances we are born into dictate the people we can connect with.
