MOURID "It is beautiful to hear you laugh. It takes more air to laugh than to speak. When you inhale, my son’s lungs extract the oxygen from the air, then distribute it via the bloodstream to every cell in your body."
An Arab father visits an Israeli woman in the hospital just after she has received an organ donation. With him, she must learn to breath with the new lungs that tie her forever to him.
