Synopsis

Raz and Lilah are artists who document their home-building, fertility treatments and birth of twins: Noor is a healthy girl, and Yam has a heart defect. After a series of surgeries, Yam is held isolated at home, for more than two years, alongside his mother and sister, to avoid contagion. The children grow up and then Raz is diagnosed with cancer. Six years of the family's survival routine is closely documented. This reflective artwork deals with the unbearable gap between dreams and body limitations. It may offer solace, comfort and even raise a smile.
