"Amarila does not like tequila" is a crossing point of three stories. A brave crossing of the elusive boundaries between one's own coziness and the outside spaces, a wandering among the worlds of sleep, of sleeplessness, of daylight, of books... In her insomnia Amarila is driven from adventure to adventure, and those dreams are the life of Yossi in his personal cosmos. The past is the place where the Old Man usually comes back to, obsessed with the sense of the passing time, but there is still something that keeps him here and now.
What binds them together, what are they running from and where do they arrive? How does life mark us and how do we mark it? What's the point of all this? Life is incredible.
