One night, my parents left the house my father had built In the Bedouin town of Tel Sheva and passed, perhaps "fled," to Omer - the bourgeois, a Jewish neighborhood located five kilometers from Tel Sheva.

My mother, Rhodina, had breast cancer and for ten years of coping with the disease her only wish was to be buried in Omer. The Local Council never encountered or dealt with this issue, where to bury its non-Jewish residents.

The film documents an entire family torn between fulfilling the mother’s wish and Social and traditional dilemmas. In the process of separating from the mother, the film penetrates the family intimacy, secrets and dilemmas, and raises questions about female and national identity.

At the end of the screening, a discussion will be held with the director.
