Through the streets of Jerusalem two teenagers' stories will unite to tell the summer adventure of their lives. Tamar is an amazingly talented but very quiet and insecure girl, who leaves behind her home and all she knows, changing herself unrecognizably -from her looks to her attitude- to brace herself for a dangerous mission to help a loved-one. Asaf, a clumsy, naive, and very shy boy working a boring summer job at City Hall, is given quite a mission himself : to take an uncontrollable stray dog from the pound, put it on a leash, and let it lead him back to its owners to be fined. The dog -Dinkah leads Asaf through the city to the people and places that will tell him about Dinka's owner -Tamar and her sudden disappearance. The more stories Asaf hears about this extraordinary girl, the more he falls for her, and as he and Dinkah continue their journey Asaf becomes aware that Tamar is in grave danger. Feeling he knows her, and knowing he loves her Asaf is determined to find Tamar and ... Written by Anonymous

A True Drama.
2 August 2006 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

A great movie!!! Truly done wonderfully. I think the director was able to take the most of this story and make it enjoyable, thrilling and surprising to watch... The story itself was very interesting, realistic and painful. The feelings of those who live in the streets, in their own "world of the streets", was build so well in the movie and you could actually feel like you live in this "world".I think the actors were great and helped a lot in creating the atmosphere around this movie- loneliness, fears, troubles and one big beauty in the middle that is demonstrated through music. Music was the theme of this movie and it was remarkable to see how the music lights the darkest corners. I think the movie had a lot to say about falling into the wrong places in life, as drug abuse and so on. It was exciting to see what people would do for each other and how hope must never be lost. I liked the twists in the plot, and especially I enjoyed the way the two plots were told together side by side. Great movie! I recommend.
