Full of quirky charm, this multi-strand tale about storytelling – and a fractured family – unfolds in Tiberias, where reality and fantasy cleverly intertwine. The connections between the characters and the profound implications of their stories grow in complexity as the film progresses.

The central characters are estranged siblings who face challenges in adulthood: A son who has just awakened from a lengthy coma, a terminally-ill girlfriend, and a daughter who was killed in an army accident.
