(Israel/France/USA, 2009, 104 Minutes, Color, English, Hebrew, Russian, English subtitles, Cast: Olga Kurylenko, Ninet Tayeb, Zohar Shtrauss, Liron Levo, Henry David, Lior Habra.

Galia (Olga Kurylenko of "Quantum of Solace" and Neil Marshall's "Centurion") is an assassin involved, against her will, with the local sex-traffic mafia. All she wants is to be reunited with her little daughter who she left back home in the Ukraine.

Elinor (Ninet Tayeb) is a grocery store cashier and a battered wife. She dreams of winning the lottery and running away from her abusive husband.

Although they don't know one another other, Galia and Elinor share two things: a common wall and a strong need to escape. As Galia disobeys her latest contract and Elinor discovers that she's pregnant, the two women decide to take action against their oppressors in a fight for survival and freedom.
