 February 4–March 8, 2009 


A scalding, sensual look at upper-middle class life in a Tel Aviv suburb. After a split-second roadside collision with a Chinese foreign worker, two couples’ lives unravel as their acts of omission and commission come back to haunt them. A daughter comes clean to her parents, forcing everyone to undertake moral reckonings of their own.  This hit Israeli show is a biting look at the way we live now.
