It’s a scorching hot summer in the small town of Afula. Daphna, 40, an outspoken and pugnacious police officer, has been relocated from Tel Aviv. The local petty crimes are a far cry from the big city crime she is used to. When a former beauty queen and army widow disappears, Daphna raises a troubling question – why isn’t anybody looking for her? Fearing the worst, Daphna has to find answers and as she gets further embroiled in the case she makes risky choices and crosses professional boundaries.

Director Maya Dreifuss feminizes the crime genre, in this breathtaking investigation rooted in the stifling atmosphere of the Israeli hinterland.
