With post-film discussion with Director Michal Aviad

From longtime Israeli filmmaker Michal Aviad, a powerful new drama about a young woman trying to balance work and family who must wrestle with sexism, and a pattern of predatory behavior, which ultimately brings her career and marriage to the brink.

Orna, (Liron Ben Shlush) is the mother of three young children with a husband struggling to start his own restaurant. To help support her family Orna returns to the workplace, landing a job with a former army superior, Benny (Menashe Noy) who is now a successful real estate developer. While Orna embraces her new position and tries to balance its demands with her home life, she begins to experience escalating
sexual harassment from her boss. Her rapid rise through the ranks and her increasing financial success seem to parallel a pattern of predatory behavior which ultimately brings her career and marital relationship to the brink. This timely and devastating story is expertly told by long time feminist filmmaker Michal Aviad. (Israel, 2018, 93 min., NR, Hebrew with English subtitles, Dir. Michal Aviad)
