During the Second Lebanon War, Motti and Keren, a young religious couple from the north of Israel, look for a place to stay to escape the tense situation in their hometown. They find themselves at Yali and Boaz’s bourgeois apartment in Tel Aviv.
Due to differences between the couples, conflicts begin to arise. The apartment becomes crowded and tense and Keren’s obvious pregnancy becomes a painful reminder of the life Boaz and Yali will never have. Through the development of these relationships, this film tells the story of two couples that reflect some of the greater issues facing Israeli society today.
