Noa has been living in Berlin for eight years now. She is about to graduate from universtiy and recently moved in with her German boyfriend Jörg. Although everything should be running smoothly, she suddenly experiences a personal crisis. Noa’s life is in discord; she feels misunderstood and isolated, in fact, she can hardly recognize herself anymore. As Noa’s master thesis, a dictionary for nontranslatable words, is deemed inadequate by her professor and Jörg goes on tour with his orchestra, Noa decides to take a break and spontaneously flies back to Israel. But everyday life hunts her down in Israel faster than she could ever have imagined. Old ones resurface and new ones appear. Ironically she feels just as misunderstood in her homeland as she already felt in Berlin. Of all days, on Israeli National Memorial Day, Jörg has to show up, thus bringing Noa‘s two carefully separated worlds into collision.

In the presence of Ester Amrami.
