“You spent fifty weeks a year trying to assimilate and two weeks a year going back to your roots.”
Moon in the 12th House (Yareach Be'bait 12)
“Powerful and moving… combining past and present with ease.” – Le Blog du Cinema
Sisters Mira and Lenny, separated at youth in traumatic circumstances, are young women when they finally meet again. The older and wilder Mira, who works in a hip Tel Aviv nightclub, abruptly returns to their childhood home, where the dutiful Lenny has stayed to care for their father. Their unexpected reunion leads them on an emotional journey of healing and reconciliation. Commanding performances and hypnotic cinematography elevate this moving meditation on family ties and lost youth.
