“The border is a hopeful place as it has the potential for connection. It is at the border where two countries, two cultures and two people can come together. Where there is coming together, there is hope.” 

(Nimrod Danishman, Playwright)

What divides or connect two people who meet online? The virtual fantasy, the distance, the foreignness, the border?

Boaz and George meet on Grindr. They are attracted to one another instantly and want to meet in person, but something prevents them from doing so. One lives in Israel, the other- in Lebanon. Is it just the physical border that keeps them apart? Would their virtual relationship survive in the real world?
