Summary

Summary

Nir Bergman's debut feature, K'Nafayim Shvurot (Broken Wings), chronicles the problems of an Israeli family attempting to come to terms with the death of the husband and father. Nine months after her father's untimely passing, 17-year-old Maya (Maya Maron) spends much of her time helping to raise her younger brother and sister, as mother Dafna (Orli Zilberschatz-Banai) has to work as much as possible at the hospital. While each character struggles with his or her fears and dreams, the family's emotional and financial situation grows dire. Broken Wings was screened at both the Berlin Film Festival and the Palm Springs Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
