In this poignant drama claiming top prize at the Israeli Academy Awards, actress Shira Haas (SHTISEL and UNORTHODOX) is exceptional as a rebellious teen dealing with a progressive illness and fraught relationship with her free-spirited mother. Asia (Alena Yiv), a single parent at an early age who emigrated from Russia with daughter Vika (Haas), works long hours as a nurse in Jerusalem. Both are stubborn, opinionated, and brusque. As her daughter enters adulthood, she tests boundaries and inevitably rebels against her mother’s lax parenting. But as her health worsens, Asia must become the mother Vika desperately needs. A bravely unsentimental rumination on motherhood, desire, and mortality, the assured feature debut of writer-director Ruthy Pribar is Israel’s Best International Feature Film Oscar submission.
