After giving birth to a deaf child, Anat takes drastic measures to ensure that he becomes the musical prodigy her father always wanted. But when the boy grows up indifferent to achieving his destiny as a great pianist, Anat is forced to stand up to her father and confront the harsh realities of her past.
A “remarkably potent film . . . that has an affinity with the works of Lucrecia Martel & Michael Haneke. Critic's Pick!" (New York Times)
