Shimon Dotan's debut short (Repeat Dive, The Settlers) follows the Vardis – a family out on an outdoors picnic. The family is made up of a grandmother, father, mother, and daughter. They are later joined by Henry, the daughter's future husband (a fact unbeknownst to him as of yet). Whilst out in nature, they meet two young men, one of whom goes cycling with the daughter. Their bike ride is subsequently interrupted in the middle of a highly intimate moment. Two years later, that same young man spots the Vardi daughter out on the street, but she is already a wife and mother of a baby. The film was inspired by Jean Renoir's Village Party.
