Storyline

The year is 2002, the height of the Second Intifada. After two years of suicide bombers and many casualties, Israel is a society in crisis. One Friday afternoon, while everyone is asleep, an Israeli mother barricades her home. Ruthy is unable to deal with the stress and anxiety she suffers as a result of the continuous political situation. She decides to protect her family: her 20-year-old soldier son Offer, her 16-year-old daughter Noa, and her husband Yoel. They all wake up to find the house locked, disconnected from the outside world. "For how long?" ask the surprised family members. "Until there is peace," comes the motherly response.
