Asia concentrates on her job as a nurse while her daughter Vika hangs out at the skate-park with her friends. The two barely interact with one another but their routine is shaken when Vika's health suddenly deteriorates. A heartbreaking, intimate story of a mother and teen daughter belated relationship. Beautifully photographed and superbly acted, “Asia” was this year’s Israeli Oscar contender. In the role of Viki appeared Shira Haas, known for “Unorthodox” and “Shtisel”.
