This powerful and engrossing new Israeli drama could hardly be more timely. Orna, an ambitious career woman, takes a new job as a real estate marketing manager, selling luxurious apartments to overseas buyers. Determined to prove herself to Benny, her new boss, she is willing to sacrifice her family life and free time. But when Benny’s flirting turns into harassment, Orna struggles to restore her sense of dignity and self-worth. Superbly acted and written, Working Woman is a cautionary tale for our times.
