Nominated for a whopping 13 Israeli Oscars and winner of Best Actress, Best Cinematography, and the Nora Ephron Award for Director at Tribeca 2020, this touching and beautifully acted drama is about the unusual directions love can take in a mother-daughter relationship. Motherhood has always been an ongoing struggle for Asia (Alena Yiv) rather than an obvious instinct. Having a child at a very early age has shaped her relationship with her teenage daughter, Vika (Emmy® nominee Shira Haas, Unorthodox). Despite living together, the two barely interact with one another. Asia concentrates on her job as a nurse, while Vika hangs out at the skate-park with her friends. Their routine is shaken when Vika begins struggling with a degenerative illness and her health deteriorates rapidly. Asia must step in and become the mother her daughter so desperately needs.
