Tal, a 17-year-old French girl forced to move with her family to Jerusalem, despairs at the seemingly endless tension between Israel and Palestine. She writes an optimistic letter that ends up as a message in a bottle, thrown into the sea by her brother before he joins the military. After some time passes, Tal receives an e-mail from a Palestinian man calling himself Naim, who was moved by her dreams of peace. The two begin a life-altering long-distance relationship.
