DESCRIPTION

The restaurant run by Orna’s husband does not bring the expected income and the family of five is at a turning point. Orna decides to take on a well-paid job as Benny's assistant in the construction industry. Her career is flourishing, her boss is very happy with her work and Orna will be promoted. Unfortunately, the boss abuses his position and makes it increasingly clear that he expects to go far beyond a just professional relationship. Bennie, alternately charming and insistent, makes Orna fall into a trap, a mixture of fear of losing her job, shame, humiliation and guilt.
