In the first part of a trilogy about love, Israeli director Yaron Shani has constructed  a clever, sly psychodrama that looks deep into the abyss of two souls. Alice, a successful writer, starts having disturbing visions in which she is raped. Most of the time the 34-year old barricades herself in her flat and endures her nightmares. In the house opposite lives 17-year old Ziv, a sensitive, talented guitarist, who is struggling with the demands of growing up. On a film project about conscientious objectors, the two meet and discover a sinister link.
