We are in being, and being does not know time. 

Jessica, a young French Israeli actress, is visiting Israel for an audition during one of the recent wars between Israel and Gaza. The omnipresent atmosphere of war engulfs the streets and shapes the experience of Jessica’s visit, sweeping her towards a pursuit following a certain kind of pleasure. 

JOUISSANCE is a film about our search for satisfaction through personal, political and sexual desires, a pursuit of what Jacques Lacan would describe as a paradoxical pleasure, one that reaches an almost intolerable excitement, enjoyment that goes beyond both language and the Pleasure Principle.
