Director Michal Aviad (The Women Pioneers, Invisible) offers an engrossing and complex drama that could not be more timely. Liron Ben Shlush (Next to Her) delivers a multi-faceted performance as Orna, a woman who takes a job to keep her financially struggling family afloat. Her boss soon makes an unwanted advance that she rebuffs. Though he apologizes, his behaviour becomes increasingly aggressive and Orna is put in an impossible predicament. Eschewing melodrama, Aviad delivers a hard-hitting and empowering drama that depicts murky workplace dynamics and the insidious nature of sexual harassment.
