Ya'ara has just begun her PhD at Princeton. Ya'ara is also blind. She rushes to Israel when she hears of Talia's suicide, her cousin and best friend. As children they were inseparatble. Talia saw for both of them, and always believed and led Ya'ara to believe, that in spite of her blindness, Ya'ara can see everything.
Ya'ara joins Talia's family in Israel, and surrounded by their close ones, embarks upon an investigation to discover what led to Talia's suicide. Lies, secrets, and gaps are revealed in the lives of Talia, Ya'ara, and their family. Ya'ara digs up childhood memories, in the hope of "re-seeing" what should have been clear all along, things that were blocked from her sight not only due to her blindness.
In the unsettling journey between her physical and mental blindness, Ya'ara jeopardizes her relationship with her father, Talia's parents and Talia's younger sister, Daphna.
