This is the story of Alma, a young media star living in Tel Aviv in the early 90s, who seems to have it all: money, fame, a great boyfriend, successful friends, and a life running along a sure path to success. But in reality, there is a big, black hole in Alma's heart. Entering her life and stealing her heart is film student Ben, a dark, mysterious anarchist. The two fall deeply in love, at times appearing to be one another's salvation, and at other times seeming to pull one another into the depths of oblivion.
