15th Annual Israeli Film FestivalThe story of a relationship between kindergarten teacher Nira and her student Yoav, whose poetic talent she unexpectedly discovers for herself. This discovery literally transforms the grey workdays of the woman, tired of her everyday worries and cares. The poems, which sound absolutely un-childlike even on the child’s lips, strike her as genius. Nira tries to pass them off as her own, while deeper and deeper linking herself in her relationship to the boy, his parents’ traumatic divorce, and the one who is demanding attention for himself. But to what will this lead our heroine, who is ready to forget about her own children and happy marriage?Best direction at the Buenos Aires International Independent Film Festival (2015); Israeli critics’ pick at the Jerusalem International Film Festival (2014).
