Introduction
Yoel and Ewa are long married. One day, Yoel learns to his surprise that he owns property and that one of the tenants knows Ewa well. Yoel tries to solve the mystery, and his life changes forever. A drama that shifts between Holocaust memories and the present, director Haim Tabakman wanted to depict “a moment in the life of a couple, when the human struggle to share an entire life with a person who is different from you comes to a dramatic edge”. Tabakman made his debut with Eyes Wide Open, which screened at Cannes. Ewa is his second feature, an Israel-Europe (Poland and Germany) co-production.

Yoel and Ewa have been married for a long time. While putting their papers in order, he finds a note from the bank informing him of a loan on an apartment he owns, which he never knew about. Yoel discovers that in that apartment, on the poor side of town, lives a strange man, who knows his wife intimately. Yoel's investigation of the matter will change his life forever.

[Director's Message]
Coming from my own experience in maintaining a long-term relationship, I was interested in depicting a moment in the life of a couple, when the human struggle to share an entire life with a person who is different from you comes to a dramatic edge. When it's necessary to make great sacrifices in order to survive as a couple.
