Tamar’s behavior is fixed. One man after another, a hand job, a blow job, and so on. But she is also the mother of Mika and Noa, twelve and eight years old. She no longer seeks redemption, until veterinary surgeon Shai returns to his home village. He comes in order to handle his dead mother’s property. Shai is not aware of Tamar’s behavior, but soon enough discovers her way. He does not care for it, for he thinks he can save her. They fall in love and soon Tamar stops messing around. The tightly knit society is skeptical of her purification process, but true trouble lies in this new daily routine creating a harsh sense of emptiness in Tamar’s core.

Hagar Ben-Asher plays the leading role and wrote the script for her provoking feature debut.
