A psychological drama set entirely during one night in one apartment in Tel Aviv. The apartment belongs to young couple Shir and Rami. Shir is woken one evening by the doorbell. An angry neighbour hands over the dog Rami had taken out earlier in the evening. Rami has suddenly disappeared and Shir is worried because he didn’t take his phone or wallet with him.
The film follows events in the apartment during the night, where a series of visitors join the woman waiting: friends, family, the police and unexpected guests.
In the powerful dialogues and occasionally fierce confrontations, humiliating secrets come to the surface. An increasingly clear and complex picture emerges of the characters of Rami and Shir, and of the nature of their relationship, which was nowhere near as harmonious as initially suggested. The long night, during which the mood in the apartment changes, as does Shir’s, comes to an abrupt and unexpected end.
