"Melting Away" follows the story of Schlomo who, after finding women's clothing and accessories in his son Assaf's room, kicks his teenage son out of the house, with the silent consent of Assaf's mother Gallia. Four years later, Gallia turns to a private investigator to help her find her son and bring him to Shlomo, who is dying of cancer. Assaf is found in Tel Aviv, where he performs at a nightclub as a transgender woman named Anna. Anna refuses to see her father despite his condition and Gallia desperately tries to come to terms with the realization that her son has become her daughter. A few days later, Anna shows up at Shlomo's hospital room in the guise of a private nurse. Over the course of his treatment, she manages to conquer her father's heart, and forms a close relationship with the man she never knew. Will she reveal her true identity?
