A Film by: Limor Shamila
(Israel, 2017, 79 min, Hebrew, French, English subtitles, Cast:
Noa Biron, Avi Malka, Keren Tzur, Neta Shpigelman, Hava Ortman ).
 
When a young woman returns to her hometown in Israel following the
death of her grandfather, she falls in love with a married teacher despite
the looming figure of her fractured past, in the feature debut
by Limor Schmila.

After years of living in Jaffa, Efi comes back to Acre, her hometown, following the death of her grandfather. There she meets Karen, a teacher who is married with two children. An unexpected but deep romance begins between the women, keeping Efi in Acco, prompting her to rethink her plans and pulling her to revisit
her past.

This extended stay in the neighbourhood of her youth means that Efi must
confront many of the buried secrets of her childhood and the tribal nature of the community that nurtured — and disrupted — her early years. When the exposure of those secrets leads directly to Karen's family, difficult decisions must be made.
