Director Dina Zvi-Riklis's multigenerational saga detailing the redemptive journey of three beautiful triplets was nominated for nine Israeli Academy Awards and offers an emotional exploration of memory, loyalty, betrayal, and self-sacrifice among family. Born to wealthy Jewish parents in Alexandria, Egypt in 1942, infant sisters Flora, Yasmin, and Rose Hakim were blessed and welcomed into this world by none other than King Farouk himself. Rose (Gila Almagor) was always the least predictable sister, a vain and self-absorbed singer who withdrew into seclusion following the death of her husband. When Yasmin falls ill and longs to come clean about a long-buried family secret, she enlists the aid of Rose's daughter in producing a video that will finally bring the family's long-gestating issues out into the open. Needless to say this heartfelt confession prompts tempers to flare and reopens old wounds, sending all three sisters on a soul searching journey into the past in hopes of coming to terms with sixty-years of self imposed silence.
