Orly Zilbershatz-Banai stars as Dafna, a mother struggling to keep her family afloat after the sudden death of their beloved father. Forced into a role of surrogate mother to her two youngest siblings, Ido and Bahr, budding songwriter Maya grudgingly tackles domestic chores and struggles to finish her education. Her more philosophical brother, Yair, declares that life is meaningless. To prove his point, he quits high school and takes a job distributing pamphets on the metro dressed as a giant mouse. Could life become more absurd? When a terrible event strikes once again, only a miracle can save them - a miracle born of love.
The unexpected death of the family patriarch throws every member of the Ullmann clan off course. Widow Dafna takes to bed for three months and when she finally returns to her job at the maternity hospital, she has little time for her children. Eldest son, Yair drops out of school and adopts a fatalist attitude, shutting out his siblings and girlfriend. His twin sister Maya, a talented musician, feels the most guilt and is forced to act as a family caregiver at the expense of career opportunities. Bullied at school, younger son Ido responds by obsessively filming himself with a video camera and attempting dangerous feats. The baby sister, Bar, is woefully neglected. Preoccupied with their own misery, the family is barely a family anymore. When another tragedy strikes, will they be able to support one another?
This is a Region 4 disc, the local region for Australia.
