Ella (Dana Ivgy, Cinema Sabaya) is a costume designer involved in a long-term relationship with Assaf, a respected but married playwright. When Assaf dies unexpectedly, she attends every day of his shiva while keeping her identity under wraps. Diving into a world once forbidden to her, Ella grows closer and closer to Assaf’s brother, parents, and especially his wife (Ania Bukstein, A Quiet Heart).
