Eli (Michael Moshonov) is a former champion swimmer from Israel, now giving swimming lessons in Chicago. When he learns his estranged father has died, he dutifully returns to Tel Aviv to sort out his father’s affairs. There he reconnects with his childhood friend and former swimming partner Yotam (Ofri Biterman), who lives with his Ethiopian fiancée Iris (Oshrat Ingedashet). The two men have a palpable attraction, an attraction they are loathed to discuss in this lyrical and understated love triangle.
