‘Omri Givon's impressive feature debut handles a difficult subject with imagination and emotional veracity.’
For the past year, Galia has tended to her comatose boyfriend, Oren, and her own injuries. The event leading to it is a blur. The Jerusalem bus… the explosion… waking up in hospital… Most of Galia's recollections come from reports by others.
But with the passing of Oren, Galia realises that to move forward, she must confront and reconstruct that one horrific day.
Omri Givon’s visual style and carefully constructed narrative incorporates multiple genres – from romance, to thriller to ghost story – resulting in a startlingly accomplished debut feature film.
