This film won the equivalent of eight Academy Awards in Israel. Victor (Ivgi), who runs a pirate radio station in his apartment, is smitten with actress Michaella (Arieli) the moment he sets eyes on her. Though he is essentially a stalker, he's endearing all the same. His pesky habits land him in a mental hospital, where he also takes to the airwaves, broadcasting his tale of romantic obsession and heartbreak. At the institution, he finds a surrogate for Michaella when a fellow patient, Levana (Hasfari), seduces him in the shower. The mental patients are portrayed realistically and with compassion, appearing only slightly more disturbed than the rest of society.
