Under pressure, wild emotions come to the surface. Here are characters on the verge of a discovery, of getting caught, losing control, finding healing and falling apart.

Vlada goes to London follows the story of a Ukrainian immigrant Vlada, who works as a pizza delivery girl in Haifa, Israel, and dreams of becoming a famous DJ. She’s lucky to get an invitation from a little festival in London, but she must urgently get funds for a flight ticket. Vlada doesn't have money in the bank. Her single mother works as a cleaner, and her roommate doesn't work and doesn't pay bills. This fast-paced provocative social drama sheds light on the nervous job of the deliveries and the struggles of young creative immigrants.
