Jalal Hamdan is one of many Palestinians who cross into Israel to find work. With hundreds of others, he spends his nights hidden in the sixth underground floor of an incomplete shopping centre near Tel Aviv. Jalal's dream is to earn enough money to be able to marry his fiancée. This film is a journey into the darkness, with only the optimism of this young lover to light the way.
