Yom Lel Setat (A Day For Women)
A new swimming pool in town causes much chatter, particularly because Sunday has been announced as a day for women. Bringing together a diverse group of women from the small community is an unexpected equaliser – and no one is more excited than Azza, who dreams of wearing a swimsuit. Naturally, the men can’t help but be curious – and find their own colourful way of protesting against the women’s day. But there is also a darker undercurrent at play – Lula’s brother is becoming more extremist in his views. A topical reflection on community, co-existence and freedom.
