In his directorial debut, Lior Ashkenzi (Late Marriage; Footnote) proves himself to be as adept behind the camera as he is in front of it. Seven childhood friends meet for dinner to watch a lunar eclipse. What starts out as a congenial evening takes an unexpected turn when they agree to share every text message, call or notification that appear on their phones. Betrayals, secrets and unresolved issues emerge, threatening their friendships and marriages. Adapted from the 2016 Italian film of the same name, Ashkenazi puts a uniquely Israeli spin on a film that has been remade in over 20 countries.
