Description

Apathetic 17-year-old Naama does little to feign interest in school or family, even when her older sister goes missing from the military. But things change when a rebellious blond named Hershko shows up at school, and the two girls explore their mutual attraction to drugs and each other. As her family frets over the rumor that her older sister has run off with a Palestinian, Naama has plunged headfirst into the intoxicating aura of new love. This rebel girl romance throws a unique light on contemporary Israel, filtering its politics through the eyes and actions of Israel’s defiant youth.
