Description

Michael Aloni’s (Akiva from Shtisel) directorial debut proves him to be just as talented behind the camera as he is in front of it. Shir is a disaffected 17-year old whose brother was killed in action. Expected to join her mother to participate in a Memorial Day ceremony to honour him, Shir rebels against the conventional way fallen soldiers are honoured, and skips the ceremony. She spends the day acting out against the established rules only to discover that you can’t escape yourself.
