The formidable team of directors Guy Nattiv and Erez Tadmor cast two of Israel’s most talented actors , Reymonde Amsallem and Lior Ashkenazi in a romantic and poetic film of Jerusalem. Proving that the length of a film is not a prerequisite to reach into the heart, the story told through the eyes of Aaron, a simple man who works as a guard at the Western Wall Guard. One day a beautiful, mysterious woman puts a note in one of the holy cracks in the wall, and Aaron decides to fulfill her deepest wish, while learning that love is all about communication.
