About the Film:

Dir. Ruthy Pribar | 85 min
Narrative | Israel | 2020
Hebrew with English subtitles

Asia (Alena Yiv) and Vika (Shira Haas) are more like sisters than mother and daughter. Young mom Asia hides nothing about her work-hard, play-hard lifestyle, and she expects the same openness and honesty from teenage Vika.
