Rami was never troubled by much till that day in the park when his daughter was bitten by a dog. Since then, he is consumed with guilt. Was I at fault? Did I not protect her? Was it my weakness which caused all this? Haunted by feelings of inadequacy, he agrees to a plan proposed by his best friend Mickey - kill the dog, before it harms another little girl. Out of his element, drawn towards a darkness which he did not know existed, Rami begins to walk down a slippery slope, whose consequences are nothing but dire...
