Despite the success of her new novel, Alice experiences a nervous breakdown, whose roots are unclear but may have something to do with reports on a serial rapist on the loose in Tel Aviv. Ziv, who lives with his parents across the street from Alice, is a young and gifted musician whose dream of becoming a professional player is in jeopardy due to his imminent army service. When the two meet to discuss a new documentary Alice is working on, they instantly connect, but the effect they have on one another proves much more destructive than either can possibly imagine. With remarkable performances and a complex non-linear narrative, the first instalment in Shani’s trilogy is an unforgettable cinematic tour de force.
