Galia (stunningly played by Reymonde Amsellem of Three Mothers), a young woman from Jerusalem, cannot recall the terrorist bombing that left her boyfriend in a coma and herself with significant memory loss. As people and objects begin to resurface from that fateful day - a necklace, a handsome stranger named Boaz (Eldad Prives) - Galia begins piecing together the events in the form of flashbacks and hallucinations that send her back to that traumatic incident. All of this culminates in an unforgettable final act that will stay with you long after the movie ends. Seven Minutes in Heaven transcends the sensationalism one associates with a film about a suicide bombing, and becomes a mesmerizing and complex character study that probes the deeper themes of memory and identity.
