    Drama

    Alex, a young woman aged 18, lives with her mother in Arad, a small town in the middle of the desert near the Dead Sea. One day her mother disappears without a word of explanation. Abandoned, Alex must now get by alone. But when she creeps into the houses at night, it's not so much to steal money but to appropriate the intimacy of others and their lives.
