At her small neglected apartment, Miriam’s troubled sleep is interrupted by a phone call. On the other side of the line, her daughter Lior weeps. Miriam, at first aggressive and hesitant, is caving to Lior’s begging and goes to pick her up from southern Tel Aviv. She doesn’t know where the journey after her daughter will take her, nor what will she find at its end.
