The film, which was awarded the prestigious Camera d'Or at Cannes for best debut, is a multi-strand take on life in modern-day Tel Aviv. A newlywed couple find their honeymoon interrupted when the bride breaks her leg climbing out of a locked toilet. A young girl emerges from the sea one day into the arms of a heartbroken stranger, recently split up from her boyfriend while in another strand a Filipina maid has to wordlessly connect with her charge, an elderly woman who has been neglected by her aspiring actress of a daughter. Instead what emerges is an endlessly surprising, poignant work imbued with the calming sorrow, and wonder, of the sea's deep blue which provides so much of the film's tone and hue.
