A colony of peculiar ants has made its home in an ordinary family apartment in Tel Aviv.
Each summer, these ants have the habit of munching the labels of Diet-Coke bottles, perforating them into magnificent coral-like patterns.During the summer of 2006, the ants receive an unusually hefty supply of
Coke-bottles.As they nibble on the silvery labels, they are observed by their melancholic
co-inhabitant; a mother, who tries to find meaning in their work.
