Karni feels detached. Detached from the world, detached from her country, detached from her language and even her own body. That is, until she meets Jessica, who happens to be on a much needed break from her dreamlike American life.
While getting lost in the middle of nowhere, the pair meet two bewildered Israelis, and this band of misfits wander their way through questions of life, age, chewing gum, and themselves.
Through this unique acquaintance, Karni will rediscover her sexual identity and a whole different side to her being – a place she finally belongs in.
