Plot Summary: Natalie Portman stars alongside Hanna Laszlo, winner of the Best Actress Award at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival. While in Jerusalem, Rebecca (Portman) breaks off her engagement. Emotional and heartbroken, she flees from her ex-fiancé to get her life together. Without a destination, she gets into a cab driven by Hanna (Laszlo), who is on her way to Jordan’s Free Zone to pick up some money owed to her. Once there, a third party named Leila breaks the news that the money has vanished. The three women travel together with unresolved dilemmas while histories of loss and suffering suffuse the conversations in this gripping tale about displacement and personal identity. Portman gives a breathtaking performance, particularly in the film’s sublime single-take opening shot.
