After her husband’s accidental death, Dafna has to struggle to make a living and overcome her grief, to the detriment of her children. Fiveyear- old Bar feels abandoned while eleven year-old Ido spends his time jumping in an empty swimming pool, hoping to beat the free-fall jump world record. Yair, their elder brother, is a rebel adolescent refusing to go to school and Maya has taken refuge in music while also taking care of her brothers and sisters. Everyone tries to mourn in his own way, but the family is about to burst. Yet, an unexpected accident is about to reunify them.

“Once we understand our need for a family, we are free from the automatic attitudes we may have about it”.
