Synopsis

Music is all she has. Anat has never been able to reach her father’s musical standards and her hope for fulfillment is dependent on the embryo that is in her womb. When the baby is born deaf she cannot accept it and takes extreme measures to ensure that her child will be the composer that her father always wanted. But when the young pianist doesn’t respect his grandfather, his own glory remains uncertain. Now, Anat will have to stand up to her father.

Anat is played by well-known Israeli actress Naama Preis, whose filmography includes a hat-trick of features in Cannes Critics’ Week – “From the Diary of a Wedding Photographer” (2016), “Beyond the Mountains and Hills” (2016) and “The Kindergarten Teacher” (2015).
