Lior was my role-model in high school. She was a wild but charmful punk, always surrounded with friends. I liked filming her. After being often repressed by her, I let the friendship fade. I hardly met her, even when a rare disease left her paralyzed from the chest down. Now, Seven years later, she contacted me. Lior is prettier than ever and still full of charm, even when she struggles to make simple actions, like going to the toilet or just sitting in a cafe. Although Lior moves on a wheelchair, I find myself once again jealous with her freedom of mind and wonder who is the disabled one between us. Dealing with this question, will open the gate for a deep and honest friendship, the one I always wanted us to have.
