Chance brings together two women of strikingly different backgrounds – an Arab nurse and a Jewish researcher. Their brief encounter in a Tel Aviv bar has grave implications for both of them. The police investigation that follows tries to shed light on their mysterious connection, but the truth is impossible to pin down. Starring Evgenia Dodina (One Week and a Day) and Samira Saraya, who won the Haggiag Award for her performance, Death of a Poetess is a highly original and politically aware psychological thriller.
