Morad lived in an Arab village in the north of Israel. He was socially popular, loved by his family, an athlete and a good student. One night, in the fall of 2006, he is beaten cruelly by his classmates, who mistakenly accuse him of having an affair with their engaged cousin.Morad is taken to the hospital by his father, Asad. Physically he recovers from his wounds within days; however, he does not speak or respond to anything for weeks. Rather than hospitalizing him in a mental institution, Psychiatrist Dr. Ilan Kutz, sends Morad to a treatment with dolphins in Eilat. Morad's father takes him to the Red Sea vowing to himself to come back to the village only when his son is healthy.
