Synopsis

Or, a pretty Tel Aviv high school student, works nights while taking her first tentative steps out of innocence and looking after her mother Ruthie. After 20 years of curbside prostitution, Ruthie has deteriorated, and it’s up to Or to see that they don’t both wind up on the street.

Critics reviews

The stubborn detachment of the mise en scene is a lot more ambiguous than anything the plot seems to be implying: Yedaya typically plunks her camera down in a single position for each scene, refusing to budge even when the characters move out of the frame, and one of the effects of this impartiality is to challenge some of our received ideas about the sexuality of both mother and daughter.
