A psychological drama about life, childhood, education and the role of educator. Do schools form people in the same moulds and are great artistic talents condemned to stay in the background?



Our suggestions

This is a story of a teacher who becomes at first enchanted, and then ultimately consumed by the poetic genius of her five-year-old student. As the titular protagonist, Nira, discovers that her young student, Yoav, has an otherworldly talent for language and poetry, she slowly and progressively becomes interested in cultivating the boy's gift.
