Camille, Eve, Ariane and Nick are friends who have three things in common: they're all twenty-something, they work together running Lovespace, the Barcelona publishing house they launched, and they're all dependent on Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive. Although they're openly gay in their everyday lives, only Camille's mother Josepha knows the truth about them all. She and her daughter decide the time has come for the others to tell their parents, too, and organise a weekend house party for a grand collective coming-out. Eve, Ariane and Nick, after some initial hesitation, agree to the plan and Lili, their straight co-worker, who is always asking herself 'why not me?' vis-a-vis her own sexuality, decides to join them. Inevitably, all does not go according to plan. As the revelations begin, the parents are forced to reassess their expectations of, and aspirations for, their children. And it emerges that they have some secrets of their own to air cue humorously scandalous results.

After closing the border to Palestinian workers, Israeli authorities sought to fill gaps in the job market by encouraging emigrant workers from other parts of the world. Among those who answered the call were Filipinos in various stages of gender transition. These individuals who see themselves in a female persona, shunned by their families and communities at home, build new lives in Israel as caregivers for elderly, orthodox Jewish men, many of whom come to look upon them as substitute children. On their nights off, the workers perform as a drag queen ensemble, “Paper Dolls,” in Tel Aviv nightclubs. Although the troupe's members enjoy Israel's liberal atmosphere, they are still outsiders and are always treated as such. Tomer Heymann's moving documentary explores the role of immigrant worker in Western culture, and delves into the lives of societal outcasts seeking freedom and acceptance, however tenuous.
