Synopsis

Michal is a Jerusalem renowned artist. One morning, her bed breaks, and she falls off and consequently loses her memory. She orders a new bed and discovers that a screw is missing. She complains to the furniture factory, leading to the dismissal of Nadine, a young Palestinian woman, who works packing screws in plastic bags. This event is a point of no return for both of the woman until their faith cross again at a border checkpoint. A soldier’s mistake sends Michal to Nadine's refugee camp and Nadine to Michal’s home in Jerusalem. This switch leads them to discover their innermost desires, the ones they could not access in their previous lives.
