HaNeshef

Three unpopular high school students from Jerusalem decide to travel to Kiev to get plastic surgery, hoping this will change their lives for the better and help them find their dream dates for the prom. On their way, Tigist and Keshet discover that Eden has her own reasons to embark on this journey. Adolescence, coming of age, controversial organ donations and body shaming in our anti-aging culture, make this engaging and thought-provoking film both unique and universal.
