An Israeli Love Story (Sipur Ahava Eretz-Israeli)

An Israeli Love Story

Based on the true story of theatre director and actress Pnina Gary, multi-award winning director Dan Wolman tells a passionate story of love and independence. Set in pre-state Palestine, Eli (Aviv Alush from The Women’s Balcony) and Margalit  are torn between their love for one another and where they see their own futures in the Jewish state. In the budding theatre world of Tel Aviv and the kibbutzim, Margalit finds her place in the spotlight while Eli is drawn deeper into the armed struggle for Jewish independence from the British.
