Madly in love, Eitan and Wahida confront the historical reality against which they will try to resist.
But things go wrong on the Allenby Bridge, between Israel and Jordan: victim of a terrorist attack, Eitan falls into a coma. It is in this suspended space-time that he will receive the forced visit of his parents and grandparents, while the sorrows of identity, the demon of hatred, the ideologies are inflamed and the birds of misfortune attack the hearts and minds of everyone.
