In 1999, after a 23-year absence, gifted musician Ahuva Ozeri is planning a comeback. She's recording a new album - The Bells are Ringing.
Ahuva, considered the queen of the Middle Eastern music, sits at home and makes a living as a cook at a meat restaurant.
She hopes to break out again with the new album. But at the end of the recording, she is diagnosed with throat cancer and undergoes surgery where her vocal cords are cut. She loses her voice forever, but the album is very successful. It managed to cross audiences and becomes a consensus.
This film is based on rare never before-seen materials, sketching her life's course.
