synopsis

Zohar Wagner decides to tear away the cloak of silence that enveloped her bourgeois family for decades. Zohar’s mother had a long lasting affair with a man ten years her junior, and at the age of twelve, Zohar became an accomplice to this secret.

Twenty years after the difficult episode that had torn the family apart, Zohar’s mother is selling her childhood home. As the entire family gathers for the occasion, Zohar brings along her video camera to witness the opening of a Pandora’s Box, and all the heavy secrets that pour out.

The film is called “Zorki” – after the family nickname for Zohar.
