We Used to Sing
The story of a family of four Russian women that immigrated from Moscow to a two bedroom apartment in Tel Aviv.
The film reveals the intimate yet complex relationships formed by a unique sisterhood of strong, colorful women, as they try to lay down roots – living through their fears, frustrations, longings, and above all, hope.

An intimate and bittersweet portrait of three generations of women living together in a small apartment. A film about unconditional motherly love and the sacrifices mothers are willing to make for their children. With a remarkably personal and honest approach, the filmmaker offers insight into the relations between the women. By witnessing everyday moments of the family life, the story unfolds itself.
