A thoroughly absorbing psychological drama from Israeli director Itay Tal. When Anat, the scion of a distinguished musical family, learns that her new born baby might become deaf, she decides in a moment of madness – or extreme clarity – to do the unthinkable, hoping that this will allow her to keep the family’s dream intact. This nuanced and suspense filled debut explores familial expectations, overpowering ambitions and the sacrifices we are willing to make in order to fulfil them.
