Israel 2021, 55 min, Hebrew and Moroccan, Hebrew & English subtitles

Yamna is an 82-year-old miracle-worker and righteous woman from Sderot. The film depicts her unique character and rituals, her eastern culture and her effort to bequeath her mystical power to the next generation
Yamna’s story is told through the people who come to her for help as we are offered a glimpse into some of her secrets. Yehudit, 40, whose biological clock is running out, hopes that Yamna can help her become pregnant after conventional fertilization treatments have failed. Dudu, Yamna’s grandson, asks her for help with finding success in the music industry. Yamna’s daughter, Shula, has the technical know-how of her mother but is still searching for the special spark she needs to honor her birthright and become a righteous woman.
