Haim-Aaron is a bright, Ultra-Orthodox religious scholar living in Jerusalem. His talents and devotion are envied by all.
One evening, following a self-imposed fast, Haim-Aaron collapses and loses consciousness.
The paramedics announce his death, but his father takes over resuscitation efforts and, beyond all expectations, Haim-Aaron comes back to life.
After the accident, try as he might, Haim-Aaron remains apathetic to his studies. He feels overwhelmed by a sudden awakening of his body and suspects this is God testing him. He wonders if he should stray from the prescribed path and find a way to rekindle his faith.
The father notices his sonís changed behavior and tries to forgive him. He is tormented by the fear of having crossed Godís will, the night he resuscitated his son.
