Mami is a young woman from a southern Israel town who works as a gas station cashier. When her husband, Nissim, is injured in the war, her life changes. She takes the wheelchair-bound Nissim to Tel Aviv. They face a series of surreal events in this musical commentary on Israeli politics and militarization. This cinematic adaptation of Mami, a 1980s Israeli rock opera, features 16 songs recorded live, with new arrangements by rock star Dudu Tassa and his collaborator, Nir Maimon. An Ophir prize winner for Best Music and Best Sound.
