[⏵] Three women carry the wounds and scars of their lives. An intense Israeli drama. Avigail had her first child much too young and is helpless in the face of the temper tantrums of her now teenage daughter. Her new husband wants to have a child with her, but Avigail can’t fulfill his wish. She seeks help from Yael, a pregnancy expert, who has built up the persona of a spiritual guru in order to escape her own fears of becoming a mother. Naama, her sister, reminds her of this truth, a volcano and emotional wreck. Three women in a deep crisis – who help each other to be reborn.
