Hanan, a poor Yeshiva student, deeply involved in Kabbalah, learned that his beloved Lea, daughter of the wealthy man of the shtetl, will be given to another guy. His incongruous death changes the cause of the events. The story takes an incredible turnover.

His soul gets stuck between two worlds. He isn't dead and not alive. His restless soul can't find peace. She is chased by his image...Everything gets out of order. Wedding upset.

Hanan's soul penetrates to her body and soul. The bride is possessed by dybbuk, sickness...Love?
