Best Series & Best Performance (Maya Landsmann) at Canneseries 2022
Words can inspire… and destroy.
A student confronts her teacher, dividing the community. A social war has begun…
A political discussion between Amir, a 43-year-old teacher, and Lian, a 17-year-old student turns into an emotional conflict that bursts far out of the classroom. In a fight over justice, both Amir and Lian, will not give in, even when things spin out of control and take a devastating toll that will change their lives forever.
The six episodes follow the ripple effect of their disagreement from the classroom to the entire school, then throughout the community, to the media, and into the explosive political reality Israel is facing today. As the fight escalates, the series dives deep under the surface to unveil the bleeding wounds in the hearts of both protagonists.
