Israel, 1991. The whole Ohaion family weeps for the death of one of them. Faithful to the tradition, the relatives are supposed to gather in the house of the deceased and pray for seven days. While everyone seems to follow the custom, cohabitation becomes more and more heavy. Forced to bear each other day and night, brothers and sisters soon express their bitterness and quarrels overtake reverence. The atmosphere becomes unbearable and truth which was buried long ago finally surfaces.

We wanted to tell the story from the point of view of the whole family and not focus on one or two characters. The family gives us the tools to confront the world and it remains with us till our last day, for the better or for the worst… I understand the traditional value of mourning. This tradition somehow is also tribute to our roots. Our roots give us strength.” Ronit Elkabetz
