A Film by: Yanai Goz & Yoni Zicholtz 
(Israel, 2012, 90 Minutes, Color, Hebrew, English subtitles, Cast: Guy Loel, Roni Hadar, Pini Tavger, Shalom Shmuelov)

Lily is looking for a hero for her new novel. When she finds Nino, a romantic street artist by day and a peeping tom by night, she decides to seduce him and turn him into the subject of her book - without him knowing it. She meets Nino's close friend Freddy, an ultra orthodox Jew and a gay drag artist, who is Nino's muse in the same way that Nino is Lily's. Lily sees Freddy as a threat to her manipulation of Nino and realizes she must make Nino give him up. However, the tables begin to turn on Lily when Nino uncovers her true motives, and when she finds herself falling for Nino, this time for real.
