Movie Info

Rachel, 27, is raising her mentally challenged sister Gabby, 24, all by herself. When the social worker finds out she leaves her sister alone in the house while at work, she is forced to place her in a day-care center. For the first time in her life she shares the upbringing of her dear sister with someone else, her daily routine collapses and the huge void, left by her sister's absence, makes room for a man in Rachel's life. That man, Zohar, tears another crack in the symbiotic relationship of the two sisters. Rachel hangs on to his love as if it was a life belt. But her inability to lead a normal, intimate and emotional relationship with anyone but her sister, forces them into a twisted threesome, where boundaries between love, sacrifice, nurturing and torturing - are broken.

Explores the line where caring becomes selfish rather than selfless.

This is the best film I have seen in 2016 - well written, good direction that allowed the actresses to act and space for the audience to take it all in and draw their own conclusions. A must see!

Every scene is good, its careful design enhancing the movie's portrayal of a human reality and eliciting the right response from the audience. Few movies warrant such unhesitating praise.

It might leave you utterly traumatised, but this is one of the most daring, sensitive love stories in recent memory.

A largely convincing and rewarding drama.

An uncomfortable, unflinching tale of jealousy and resentment.
