Asia’s motherhood has always been an ongoing struggle, rather than an obvious instinct. Becoming a mother at a young age has shaped Asia’s relationship with her teenage daughter Vika. Despite living together, the two barely interact — Asia concentrates on her job as a nurse while Vika’s busy at the skate park with her friends. Their routines is shaken when Vika’s health rapidly deteriorates and Asia must step up to become the mother Vika desperately needs.
Alena Yiv and Emmy-nominated ‘Unorthodox’ star Shira Haas are marvelous in Ruthy Pribar’s restrained but finally devastating debut feature.
