Late one night, Dvori Baum is summoned to a hospital in central Israel. In the hospital lies her son, seriously wounded in the savage shooting at a youth bar. He is unconscious, and no one can explain to Dvori what happened and what her only son was doing in a bar for gays and lesbians. Thus begins a poignant family drama at the centre of which is a religious 17-year unexpectedly force to come out to his family just hours after his life was miraculously saved. He soon finds himself forced by his family to undergo conversion therapy. The play, written after the tragic events of the Bar Noar.

“The humane message, striving for life and love wherever it is, is transmitted in an emotional, detailed, and even optimistic manner.”
