A closeted cardiologist in Israel encounters a mysterious patient who leads him into the company of an openly gay IDF officer, giving him hope for a better life in director Eytan Fox's compassionate sequel to Yossi & Jagger. Ten years after Jagger's tragic death, respected cardiologist Yossi has yet to recover from the devastating loss. Surrounding himself with work, he lives alone and isolated. After his closest colleagues fail repeatedly in their efforts to reach out to Yossi, however, he gets a new outlook on life thanks to an enigmatic woman who leads him to the southern city of Eilat, where handsome gay officer Tom (Oz Zehavi) lives without shame. Now the closer Yossi and Tom get, the more Yossi begins to realize that his world is changing faster than he ever could have imagined.
