A police officer is being accused of attacking two boys. His helplessness under the investigation pushes him towards the edges of his existence where anything can happen.

Rashi, a respected police officer, has been serving in the force for the past 16 years. His job is tough, and he is regularly exposed to difficult cases. Living with his new wife Avigail and her young adolescent daughter, with whom he constantly clashes, he clings to the hope of soon becoming a father. When two young boys suspected of selling drugs at a local school accuse him of sexual harassment, his life is shaken. Rashi is temporarily suspended, and his world seems to be drifting away. As time passes, the shame and stagnation expose suppressed dimensions of his personality.
