Brief Synopsis: The film starts with a
silhouette profile of a woman sitting in front of a window at night. The
image is fuzzy, obscure and grainy. Behind the window there is a river. The
woman is singing: Alé…. Trying to say “Aleph” *. She sings and sings. At the
end, a boat appears moving towards her. At this precise moment while the
boat is passing and its projectors are illuminating, she sings “Aleph”
completely. The boat leaves the frame and picture fades to black.
* Aleph is the first letter of Hebrew,
Persian and Arabic alphabets.
