Meow is a young woman roaming the streets and nightclubs of Tel Aviv. She lives in empty apartments and surfs the internet chat rooms.
One night she decides to meet Alex, her chat buddy. The road leading to the blind date is full of obstacles and mistaken identities.
They plan to meet in a nightclub but a suicide bombing prevents their meeting. She survives the attack but finds Alex in the hospital, in a coma.
After she moves into his empty apartment, the tenants start referring to her as Alex, and as she assumes his identity, she finds herself sinking into a dangerous and deluded reality.
