Synopsis: Over twenty years after Lily and Nira were raped by the same serial rapist, an unexpected encounter brings them together. Single mother Nira, a reserved television editor, comes across charismatic Lily, a left-wing activist who is helping Palestinians harvest their olives. So intense is the chance meeting, that Nira finds herself digging into her past, stirring up memories, and trying to bridge the gap between the person she once was and the person she has become. Nira becomes increasingly obsessed with her 'mission' to find out all she can about the rapist. She discovers that although he behaved violently towards all the women, the press named him the Polite Rapist and described him as "well-mannered" since he forced his victims to spend hours with him, talking to them and raping them in turn.

Hi, Nira.

- Hi, Michel.

I was told the production couldn't

find a translator for tomorrow

and they proposed to you.

- Yes...


If you want to go on editing

the film, it's okay.

Are you sure? - Sure.

- Thank you.

Michel? Who is she?

I'm not sure.

Maybe one of the activists.

I have a meeting with

this group tomorrow.

Where do I know her from?

Bye, Nira.


I'm glad you made me come.

I haven't been

in nature for years.

Go home!

Get out of here!

Move it!

Go home!

This is my land.

Everyone, move away!

I'll translate in a moment.

Let the Palestinians

pick their olives in peace.

Why don't you arrest them?

Lady, get back,

or we'll arrest all of you.

Do something before

someone gets hurts!

We have orders

not to hurt Jews.

You have no such orders.

Shall I read your orders?

You're traitors!

This is a closed military zone!

I'm asking you to leave.

Go home!

You have to

protect the Palestinians.

Get her laid,

to calm her down!

Thank you. - See you.

- Bye.

Bye. Thank you.

- Bye.


I'm sorry

they threw you out,

but thank you

for this experience.

It was important that you filmed it.


Excuse me?

Excuse me if I...

I may be completely wrong, but...

I think we've met before.

More than 20 years ago.

Lily, what's happening next time?

What we discussed.

We'll be in Jayus next Saturday,

I have to talk to Nabil,

I still have to wait for permits.

I hope I'm not bothering you.

I didn't remember that lineup

until I saw you today.

I haven't thought about it

for so long

and suddenly I remembered.

I walked out of that lineup,

and saw you,

standing at the entrance

to the police. Alone.

You stood straight

and had a braid.

When did they catch him?

I have no idea.

I get mixed up because my father

died at the same time,


Looking at you,

the signs are invisible.

But are they really visible

on anyone? You're so...

I'm sorry for

landing on you like this.

Do you think he's still in prison?

- I don't know.

I'm glad you came.

Thank you.

It was nice meeting you.

- Nice meeting you. Nira.

Bye, good night.

"The Polite Rapist"

Leave it, Lily,

I'll do it later.

It's okay.

How are you?

- Great.

How was it for you?

Great. A little short.

We've never been apart

for a whole month.

I couldn't fall asleep last night.

But was it good for you?

Was is good I didn't come?

Were you able to write?

- Lily, I'm not a robot.

After 20 years it doesn't

switch on and start working.

Did you miss me?

Of course.

What's this?

It's for you.

Thank you.

What a pesky daughter I have.

Wait a minute, sweetheart.

Yes? Hello?

- Hi.

It's me, Nira.


Meeting you really affected me,

you know?

Do you have a minute?

Yes... yes.

Everything suddenly

came back to me.

I didn't remember that my father

died after they caught him.

I shouldn't have

told my father.

That's what killed him.

It can't be your fault.

That whole period is

so mixed up for me,

it's one big muddle.

I have to...

I'm sorry, Nira, but...

- I have to find out what happened,

I've got to run.

Of course,

when can I call you?

I'm at the studio all day.

Oh, you're a dance teacher?

At "Studio A."

- Oh, I know the studio.

I really have to go.

- Yes, I'm sorry.

Move your arm away.

Like a Palestinian presenting

his ID card at a checkpoint.

At Surda checkpoint, the soldiers

divided the Palestinian women

into two lines-

pretty and ugly ones.

They stood there in two lines,

waiting to pass through.

- Come on, Lily, enough politics.

Lily, when do we do

the other arm?

Where have you been
