Melodrama on the eternal theme - searching for oneself among the unity of the dissimilar
Joy can't let go of her ex, but doesn't seem to be able to fall for the new guy. In the meantime she keeps having casual sex with strangers.
Joy is a young woman living in Tel Aviv who has a love-hate relationship with its casual sex scene. Her entire world comes down to her apartment and the street where it is located, the same street where her ex lives, who refuses to keep in touch with her. Joy tries desperately to get him back, refusing to let him go until she runs into Nir, a chatty intellectual, who says and does whatever he wants. In her attempts to be free like him, Joy will be cruel to others and develop an obsessive hunger for touch.
