“A remarkable achievement.” – The Hollywood Reporter

Tali Shalom-Ezer’s disturbing, psychological drama expertly captures the vulnerability and confusion of a young teenage girl on the cusp of becoming a woman. When Adar’s mother finds a new boyfriend, the boundaries between adult and child become irrevocably blurred, leaving Adar unprotected and retreating into an imaginary world.

Utterly engrossing and painfully well observed, this is an impressive and convincing film from a talented young director, featuring outstanding and unforgettable performances.
