Israel 2018, 65 min, Hebrew, English subtitles
The film follows a family from Nahariya (a couple and four children) from the moment the father (Amit) suddenly decides to share his secret desire to become a woman.
Galit, Amit’s wife, takes time to digest things. She realizes that with the change Amit is about to undergo, she has to make a decision – whether to stay or to leave. Galit decides to give it a chance.
Despite personal difficulties and social stigmas, the family members insist on staying together, believing that love will overcome all difficulties. But when it seems that Amit’s gender journey has finally reached its destination, it is rather Galit, the supportive partner, and her personal journey that threaten the relationship.
