Synopsis

It’s hard enough to be a teenager, working in the family Falafel food truck with her mother, who’s still grieving over her widowhood. But Nofar Azrian, 15, sells falafel to soldiers perpetually ready for war, and her hometown is the site of Israel’s secret nuclear weapons program. When a German international atomic inspector visits, the Israeli military sees a threat to national security, but Nofar sees a chance for her mother to fall in love again. Israel’s top brass brings its full weight to bear on the relationship, humiliating Nofar to get her to back down -- but they’ve never taken on a 15-year-old girl before.

 

Director

The film won best film at the Israeli Academy Awards.
