One morning, Galia and her boyfriend, Oren, board a local Jerusalem bus packed with passengers. One of them is a suicide bomber. After the explosion, Galia is left with severe burns and memory loss; she lacks all recollection of the day of the terrorist attack and the ones leading up to it. Oren is knocked into a coma. The film begins one year after the attack, upon Oren's death. As Galia undergoes physical and psychological therapy, she attempts to stitch together the shattered fragments of her life and soul. A cherished necklace, returned to her by an unidentified sender, sets her off on that journey to find the missing pieces of the puzzle from that horrific day…
