Synopsis: Ever since they remember themselves, Dasha (22) and Natasha (21) feel unrelated, not belonging to anyone or any place. The difficult relationship between their parents in Ukraine destroyed the family. One day, without any warning, their father decided to take them from Ukraine to Israel. The girls were separated from their mother and her existence was hidden from them since.
After 16 years, following their father’s death, the girls yearned to fill the empty space in their hearts, and reunited with their mother in Israel. But it was a strangers’ rendezvous.
The film follows the late relationship between the mother and daughters for 3 years and raises questions about parenthood and the patterns parents pass to their children.
