A cinematic journey into the world of Yona Wallach, an Israeli poet whose radical life and poetry ended with her death at an early age, leaving behind a myth, a trail of mystery and a throng of admirers. More than 25 years after her death, tapes from her last interview were discovered. In these tapes, Wallach confesses her attraction to madness, her experiments with drugs, her relationship with God, and the dangers she saw in writing. The film weaves her testimony with interviews and rare archival footage, her poems and evocative animation, together reviving Wallach’s thoughts, poetic images, and visions.
