A young woman comes to visit home on weekend and gets picked up by her father. The broken dialog between the two slowly transforms and gets redefined through the memory of the grandmother, the man's mother, whose figure echoes in the daughter's behavior. The grandmother's character, a middle-eastern great mother, revives out of the living memories and open wounds. The mutual path home crosses through the distant story of a suppressed Arabic-Israeli woman and Arabic culture. Both of them are now being revisited by the Israeli man.
