This adaptation for the screen of the 80s Israeli rock opera Mami tells the story of the Middle East conflict poetically and surreally. Young, shy Mami lives in a small, ramshackle town in the South of Israel and works at a petrol station. Her life is calm and peaceful and she enjoys life with her fiancé Nissim. But after the wedding Nissim is wounded in action and from now on is wheelchair-bound. To try a new start, Mami and Nissim move to Tel Aviv, where they meet an eccentric professor who manipulates their thoughts. And suddenly Mami is the icon of a new political movement.
