Morning in Israel. Nira goes to work. Same as Ahmad in London, Ralf in Cologne and a priest in Prague. Matija, Croat, goes to work too. Ok, he doesn't, but he acts like he does. Ahmad's routined drive in a red bus interrupts breathless young man. Nira is being interrupted by her pupils' rap song made just for her. Prague wasn't in the mood for singing that day, more for (over)sleeping. Someone falls asleep, someone else falls in love, like Ralf. All five mentioned above are listening to the top-news about the bees dissapearance. And trying their best, each one of them in its own 'hive': Zagreb, Jerusalem, London, Cologne, Prague.
