Synopsis

Yoel and Ewa are long married. One day, Yoel learns to his surprise that he owns property and that one of the tenants knows Ewa well. Yoel tries to solve the mystery, and his life changes forever. A drama that shifts between Holocaust memories and the present, director Haim Tabakman wanted to depict “a moment in the life of a couple, when the human struggle to share an entire life with a person who is different from you comes to a dramatic edge”. Tabakman made his debut with Eyes Wide Open, which screened at Cannes. Ewa is his second feature, an Israel-Europe (Poland and Germany) co-production.
