Synopsis
Israeli and American movies shot in the town of Jaffa between the 60’s and the 90’s serve as a basis for the story of a dream. All the characters are taken out of the original sequences, leaving the city as nothing more than an empty framework. By doing so, the impossible becomes possible, owing to a first-person point of view that films the past through a compilation of images made of memories.
