Oriented follows the life of three gay Palestinian friends confronting their national and sexual identity in Tel Aviv. Khader is a Tel Aviv "darling" from a prominent Muslim family living with his Jewish boyfriend David, a local LGBT nightlife impresario. Khader is conflicted by his desire for change in the face of a seemingly hopeless situation. Fadi is an ardent Palestinian nationalist confronted by guilty Jewish love. And Naim must confront his family with the truth about his sexuality. Meanwhile, a war is brewing beyond their personal conflicts.
