A young IDF soldier critically injured during a Gaza military operation clings to life while his family maintains a bedside vigil. Sharon Bar-Ziv writes, directs and stars in this intimate chamber ensemble, playing anxious father David whose son Ori lies comatose in a hospital bed, hovering between life and death. David and his wife Naomi (Keren Mor) rarely leave Ori’s side, speaking softly to him, praying and watching for any sign of improvement. During the long wait, family, friends, doctors and therapists struggle to temper expectations and cope with the strain of the situation that sees moments of heartbreak, humor and hope.

This beautifully rendered story of human resilience offers insight into the ordeal faced by military families in Israel and throughout the world.
