Three young women in Tel Aviv: Keren breaks her leg at her wedding reception, spoiling her plans for a honeymoon in the Caribbean; Bayta is haunted by a spooky girl on the beach until it makes her change her life; and Joy is a servant from the Philippines who inadvertedly reconciles her employer and her daughter. Do we live life, or does life live itself? Jellyfish won the Caméra d'Or for Best Newcomer in Cannes.
