From Screen Daily-

This tightly-focused workplace drama could hardly be more timely. Orna (Liron Ben Shlush), a smart, capable mother of three feels that she is more than up to the challenges of her new job, working for a high end real estate developer. But those challenges include fielding off the inappropriate attentions of her boss – attentions which incrementally push Orna out of her comfort zone. Issues come to a head during a business trip to Paris, and Orna decides to cut her ties with the job entirely. Her boss, however, has other ideas. Finely-drawn characters and the kind of grey-area scenario that may be uncomfortably familiar to many women make this a thought-provoking addition to the post #metoo conversation.
