Wedding Doll

Award-winning performances highlight this sensitive story of a mentally disabled but strong-willed young Israeli woman who struggles for independence. Socially alienated by a childhood brain injury, Hagit finds escape in designing bridal gowns and dolls out of leftover materials from the toilet paper factory where she works. All too aware of life’s cruel disappointments, her mother Sarah worries that her daughter cannot separate her romantic fantasies from real life. Emotions escalate everywhere as the factory’s closure threatens Hagit’s inflated dreams of marrying the boss’s handsome son.
