“A masterful project!” – IndieWire

“One of Tribeca’s finds this year! It also features the most complex role for an actress in the festival.” – Film Forward

A Tribeca Film Festival hit that brims with raw energy, memorable performances and sharp dialogue.

Russian émigré Anna (the impressive Asia Naifeld), a young Israeli military police investigator, is ordered to interrogate a senior elite unit officer accused of abusing a Palestinian family. Her colleagues, including her commander with whom she is having a passionate affair, advise her to drop the politically-charged case.

Determined to prove herself, she sinks her teeth into the investigation, and the interrogation room turns into an intense, sexually charged verbal battleground that puts Anna’s ideals and resolve to a sobering test.

This critically-acclaimed Israeli drama brims with raw energy, memorable performances and sharp, cut-and-thrust dialogue that will keep audiences gripping their seats.

Contains scenes of a sexual nature
