Birth Right is a comic drama that tells the story of Natasha, a young Russian woman, who is participating in an organized trip to encourage immigration of Jews to Israel. On the second day, the group arrives to the desert. Two Israeli soldiers join them for the night and the girls all fall for Shlomi, the handsome combat soldier. When Natasha manages to catch his attention by revealing her weird plan to stay in Israel right after the trip, her friends grow jealous and things turn ugly. This is a story about the universal need to feel a sense of belonging while Natasha’s personal narrative clashes with the national one, presented by the groups’ tour guide.
