The film begins one year after the attack, upon Oren's death. As Galia undergoes physical and mental therapy, she attempts to stitch together the shattered fragments of her life and soul. A necklace sent to her from an unidentified source sets her off on a journey to find the missing pieces of the puzzle from that horrific day."--Container.

This is a 2011 israeli film written and directed by Omri Givon.
The film tells about a story about Galia and her boyfriend Oren.
It begins one year after the bombing attack of the terrorist.
Without this prior knowledge of the attack, you might get bored with the first half of the film, which is slow-paced.
With so many flashbacks, I get confused once or twice, but it is a thought-provoking film about the soul and body.

I expected a better story.. The ending was confusing.

A film possibly about survivors and first responders of a bombed bus in Israel. Like the film “Jacob’s Ladder” it may be about the thoughts one has when in critical condition and hanging onto life by a thread. Like “The Usual Suspects” the truth may not be what is shown on the screen. Nevertheless, the film depicts the love of one human for another, whether it be platonic love or romantic love. One thing is for certain, the audience will undergo one emotional impact after another.
