One of the most impressive debut features of the year, starring Noa Koler (Through the Wall) as one half of a young couple from Tel Aviv who decide to build a house in the idyllic Galilee village where she was brought up. But fulfilling their dream comes at a high price, as resentments they have not dared speak of come to the surface and threaten the foundation of their relationship. Noa Koler and Udi Razzin movingly portray a couple trying their best not to let life diminish their love for each other.
