No Hard Feelings


Three decades after she arrived in Israel from the city of Derbent in the Caucasus, Sarah debates whether she should immigrate again, this time to America. She hopes to find happiness there, but more importantly, she is seeking to escape from her complicated, abusive relationship with her husband, and the suffocating, Sisyphean routine her life has taken in Israel.
Arthur, the director, accompanies his mother on a journey to the landscapes and memories of his childhood, set against the clashing cultures of a family shaped by immigration, and violence. Dreams of a better life in America lead to a journey that offers a glimmer of hope and the promise that Sarah’s shattered past can be mended. But will that promise really be kept?
