Orna 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. She lands a job with a former army superior, Benny, 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.
Officially released to theaters in March 2019, this film will screen more than fifty times at various Jewish film festivals across the United States and Canada
