'Israeli-Palestinian tensions deepen and complicate more familiar coming-out subject matter in Michawl Vinik's vibrant debut' - Variety

Seventeen year old Naama Barash enjoys alcohol, drugs and hanging out with her likeminded friends. When the suburban teen meets the cool, more experienced Dana they explore Tel Aviv's nightlife and a hesitant relationship develops between them. Meanwhile Naama's sister has gone missing from her post at a nearby military base, diverting her family's attention away from the new developments in Naama's life. Drawing favourable comparisons to Blue is the Warmest Colour, Barash is about the dizzy rush of first love, and an original, energetic drama that defies the stereotypes of life in Israel.

Hebrew with English subtitles.
