It is wedding day. Along with their families, the bride and the groom are stranded in a shelter while the Second Lebanon war is raging outside in the city of Haifa. In addition to the usual pressures involved with wedding preparations there is an extra stress caused by being jammed in the shelter. The pressure, the crowdedness, the perspiration and the sultriness inside are mixed with the alarms and bombings outside, leading to a new climax of fear when the family finds out that the groom’s 13 year old brother is roaming outside hanging direction signs for the wedding ceremony. The groom goes out in a search for his brother leaving behind a confused and undecided bride who is now unsure about their love. As soon as he leaves the shelter, a series of events brings the groom to new conclusions about the fragileness of his present and future life.
