Gili has a clear standpoint, and an agenda when it comes down to the sexual crimes. No matter who it is, she acts with firm resolution. She faces an unexpected problem when her brother Ido gets suspended from school for a similar violation. This pushes every measure and endeavor she has ever put forth to its limit, and she chooses an extreme measure. Will her brother Ido (or the audience) will be able to understand her? This film has been much talked about at many prestigious film festivals, including the Tribeca Film Festival. [AHN Boyoung]
