A film by

Aharon Keshales & Navot Papushado



Tali, where are you?

Ofer, I'm down here!


Ofer, I'm here!

Are you all right?

Where were you?

I've been calling out for hours.

I was sleeping, I didn't notice

you'd disappeared. Are you hurt?


But it's freezing,

the water's up to my knees.

It's heavy, or stuck.

Can you reach the opening?

You think I haven't tried?

It's too high.


I'm throwing you a lighter.

There's blood on your face.

I didn't even notice.

- Is it serious?

I don't think so.

What kind of a psychopath

builds a trap you can't open?

Trap? What trap?

-Relax, relax.

Must be someone hunting

foxes or rabbits or something.

All this for a rabbit?

There's got to be a trick here,

a lever or something.

This is punishment.


For running away.

Where do you come up

with this nonsense?

It's a trap, it was dark, you fell,

it could happen to anyone.

But it happened to me.

-Yeah, but you're not dead,

you didn't break anything,

you've only got a little scratch.


Seems more like a miracle to me.

I want to go home.

We're not going home.

Telling Dad was a mistake.

-A mistake?

Would you rather continue

hiding like two criminals?

As if we were

doing something wrong?

Maybe we are doing

something wrong.

There's nothing wrong about

what we're doing. You hear me?


You know how much

I love you.

And I love you.

Okay, then I'm going

to get you out of here now,

but only if you

really want me to.

You know me,

I don't like forcing anyone.


Can you hear me from there?






I can't listen to this anymore,

I'm changing stations.

Why are you getting so upset?

They're just two rich kids

who ran away from home.

Why is everything

always a joke with you?

I bet something bad

happened to them.

These stories always end badly.

-It'll end with a new SUV.

If you had kids, you wouldn't be

joking around like that.

I have one little girl,

that's plenty.

Oh, so I'm the little girl here?

And what does that make you?


A foetus.

That's right.

Okay, let's get to work.

Will you miss me?

Not sure.

I'll be back here in 20 minutes.

Menashe, be serious.

You have an evaluation to do.

But Rona, my muscles ache

from last night.

Honey-bun, unless you want

your muscles to ache tonight too,

you'll do as I tell you.

-All right...

But talk to me the whole way.


Have I told you how much

I hate those sunglasses?

Sure have.

-And you keep wearing them.

I have no choice, Rona.

You blind me. Blind me.

You always know exactly

what to say to me every morning

to melt my heart. Kiss.

I'll miss you.

Bye, Buba.

Bye, Buba.

Buba, say goodbye to Mommy.

Buba, did you hear that?

He called me Mommy.


Look at him starting to sweat.

Buba, take care

of Casanova for me, okay?

Bye, honey-bun.

-Bye, sweetie-pie.

Would you focus on the map

instead of the mirror?

You've got to see this,

it's better than a movie.

There should be

a right turn here somewhere.

Take a right here.

Oh no, did I do that?

It's okay, it'll dry.

Did you sleep well?


Where are we?

I don't know.

Are you sure this is the way?



Are you kidding me?

It's your fault,

why did you give me the map?

I'm driving, Pini,

Whoever is next to the driver

is in charge of the map,

that's how it works.

Oh, that's the new rule?

Don't piss me off, Pini.

-Okay, I got confused, big deal.

This whole area

is only an inch on the map,

-I don't think so.

I played at that court last year

and this isn't the way.
