Filmmaker Rahel Neeman’s experimental short explores the world of a young woman through this cinematic stream-of-consciousness foray. The film is nonverbal and as such, relies on a range of surrealist imagery, music, and sound effects. The disjointed editing forces the protagonist to repeat her actions over and over again, thereby portraying her daily routine as fragmented and Sisyphean, and giving the viewers an experience that is simultaneously dreamlike and nightmarish. The film earned a Special Mention at the 1977 Israeli Shorts competition.
