Galia (Reymonde Amsellem) and her friend Oren fall victim to a suicide bombing in a bus in Jerusalem. Oren dies, while Galia survives, severely traumatized. Givon’s film, half love story, half thriller, tells of Galia’s return to life. After seven minutes in a coma, Galia has lost her memory. Only her necklace serves as a starting point in piecing together a memory of the fateful day. Variety Magazine: “Boasting strong perfs, riveting hyper-real cinematography and sensitive editing.”


Omri Givon, born in 1977, filmmaker. Following his television drama"Valley of Dreams", "Seven Minutes in Heaven" marks his cinema directorial debut.
