Bina (Maya Gasner), a religious woman from Jerusalem, arrives at the hospital panic-stricken after her son Ulli (Ori Lachmi) was severely injured in a stabbing attack. This is the first time she has seen him since he became secular and lost contact with his family. Her husband, Meir (Yoram Toledano) arrives later only because their daughter Ester’s insisted. At the hospital, Bina meets Amal (Maria Zreik). While Meir searches for answers and ways to revive Ulli, the two despondent women begin to bond. However, Amal has a secret. She is hiding the fact that she is Palestinian from Bina and Meir, and refraining from telling them that she is their son’s lover.
While waiting for Ulli to awaken, they all learn about truth, faith, empathy, acceptance, and love that can and maybe should replace the fear of the unknown.
