A cruel car accident caused Eilon Reich severe head injury. After his wife leaves him, he decides against all odds to continue the rehabilitation on his own. He tries to reconstruct lost parts of his memory, and begins to paint. He paints and sculpts to express his pain. We witness Eilon's rehabilitation process through the point of view of Yael, his sister, who takes part in it, sometimes in her overseas travels as an international model. Yael exposes how his accident changes her life as well. Itai Lev, as co-director, puts order in associative cinematic language.
