Now that Itzhak's father is in a coma and dying, Itzhak is finally willing to visit him, thus breaking a ten-year silence. During his visits to the hospital, Itzhak, a beaten and reserved man, is frustrated to find himself neglected by his own family: his wife, a long-suppressed artist whose life's dream is fulfilled that same week; his thirty-year-old son - a "philosopher" still living at home; and his twenty five-year-old daughter, a tormented lesbian who has had no contact with her family for a long time. Itzhak doesn't realize, though, that his ten-year-old daughter, Didush, neglected and almost invisible to her family, is secretly visiting her grandfather whom she has never met previously and sets out to discover the old family secret. A debut feature from an emerging young Israeli director.
