  1. August 2006. Members of a family in Haifa are gathering for the wedding ceremony of their middle son in the midst of the Second Lebanon War. The father and three sons have each served in the army. All of them have been continuously trying to pretend that their war traumas did not affect their life, hoping that one day they’ll be free of their past. But to their horror, they discover that the traumas they have suppressed have already ruined them from within, and as they face another war, the traumas reappear.
