Young pretty Yaeli lives in a small town by the dead sea where she works as a carer for the skin diseased. Her house is a small house, with two small bedrooms. One of them belongs to her absent mother and has not been opened for a long time. Only then, brutal thieves invade the house . The door is now open, but life is impossible to live. With no primal intent, she herself becomes a burglaress. This revelation will eventually lead her to save her soul, her mind, her longing, and her ability to grow.
