Chava, on the other hand, has lost everything but the will to live. He has been hospitalized for months and from his bed he yearns for the noise of city streets, his home, and a girl with a dragonfly tattoo. They've never met, but life takes care of uniting them. What could two such different people have in common? Very little, except that they have decided to hide their true feelings in order to survive. Can Chava assemble the pieces of his past and come to terms with the present? Will Eric be able to confess the terrible secret that tortures him and which provoked his parents accident?
