A film by Tal Greenberg (Student, Israel/2014/19:00)
Power dynamics, interdependence, and free will are present in every love story. As in all stories, in love there is a beginning, middle, and an end. Three couples in different phases of their lives find themselves in the hospital on the same day, each for their own reasons. The film deals with such questions as where is the boundary between love and dependence, between habit and choice, and what is the true nature of love.
