Rami was never troubled by much till that day in the park when his daughter was bitten by a dog. Since then, he is consumed with guilt. Was I at fault? Did I not protect her? Was it my weakness which caused all this? Haunted by feelings of inadequacy, he agrees to a plan proposed by his best friend Mickey – kill the dog, before it harms another little girl. Out of his element, drawn towards a darkness which he did not know existed, Rami begins to walk down a slippery slope, whose consequences are tragic.
A tale of violence, Chain is an exploration into human nature's aggressive side; set in latter-day Israel, it is a parable which reflects on the fate of a country where aggression and bloodshed have become a part of everyday life.
