A Film by Michal Bat Adam (Israel, 2009, 89 Minutes, Color, DVD, Hebrew, English Subtitles)
A struggling young actress lands the leading role in a theater production. She is to play the part of a girl who undergoes a traumatic experience and is committed to a mental hospital. The actress, seeking to research her character in depth, spends some time observing in a psychiatric ward. As a result she brings to the role aspects that don't jibe with the director's take on the part - creating conflict between herself and the director.
By the evening of the play's premiere, the actress is walking a thin line between acting and madness.
