    • Michal is a renowned Jerusalem artist. One morning, her bed breaks, she falls off and consequently loses her memory. She orders a new bed and discovers that a screw is missing. She complains to the furniture factory, leading to the dismissal of Nadine, a young Palestinian woman, who works packing screws in plastic bags.
      This event is a point of no return for both women until their fates cross again at a border checkpoint. A soldier’s mistake sends Michal to Nadine’s refugee camp and Nadine to Michal’s home in Jerusalem. The swap leads them to discover their hidden desires, inaccessible in their previous lives.
