Black humour prevails in this refreshingly quirky tale about two girls who fall in love en route from Tel Aviv to Sderot.
Joe is a frustrated drug dealer who arrives home to her apartment after a drugs run to Bangkok to find a naked stranger in her bathtub. Belle is a French woman, recentlyreleased from a psychiatric ward. While it is clear she is far from healed, there is something magnetic about the manic young woman that draws Joe in. The two become entangled in an absurd murder and have to dump the body and escape the police. As they flee Tel Aviv, Joe can’t help falling in love with the resourceful Belle, but will a land torn apart by violence let them live happily ever after?
