Synopsis

Can a person reinvent herself without dealing with consequences from her past? For over 20 years, Maya Goldwasser has lived as a Jewish career woman, wife and mother, whereas in fact she was born as Nadia, daughter to a Muslim family. More than 20 years after she has abandoned her previous identity, her past rears its head again. Through the unique story of its heroine, the film contemplates life in a society ridden by profound intolerance and xenophobia.
