Dir. Nitzan Gilady (Israel, 2015, 82 min.)Nominated for Best Film at the 2015 Ophir Awards and selected for the Toronto International Film Festival. Hagit, a young woman with a mild mental disability, works in a toilet paper factory. She lives with her mother, Sarah—a divorcée who gave up her life for her daughter. Hagit strives to secure a measure of independence from her loving but overprotective mother. When a relationship develops between Hagit and the son of the factory owner, Hagit hides it from Sarah. When the factory closure is announced, Hagit’s unrealistic expectations for the future place her at odds with her mother.
