Male and female, gay and straight, devoutly religious and spiritedly secular, the Sperbers walk many paths. As the youngest sibling, Ariella, battles against her demons, older sister and director Avigail lets the camera roll on a family struggling to unite. The sole adopted daughter in a home of 12 and the only Ethiopian in a family of Zionist Ashkenazi Israelis, Ariella fights alcoholism and is constantly in and out of prison. Her sister’s film, which won the prestigious Docaviv Festival, is riveting and deeply moving.
