Jellyfish Stings Man's Face


Is this going too?


Don't you want

to say anything to me?

Like what?

I don't know...

Like "Stay".

Are you coming with us?



We'll talk.


MEDUZO (Jellyfish / Les Mduses)

Batya, your buttons.

It's not buttoned right.

And your name tag is crooked.

Not here.

And why's your

hair so messy?

Didn't you

sleep last night?

- I slept.

- Then what's wrong?


go wash your face.

Batya, either wear nail polish,

or don't, okay?

Ladies and gentlemen,

the bride and groom are dancing!

Everyone get up and join

Michael and Keren on the dance floor!


Having a good time Sara?

Hi, Joy.

- What are you doing?

- Taking pictures.

Leave the old woman

and go to the dance floor.


Is there anybody

out there?

Now you're all better.

Doctor, can we

fly with this?

We're supposed to go to the

Caribbean for our honeymoon.

Definitely not.

Why do you need the Caribbean?

You have each other.

Do you want to stay here?

You wanted us to stay,

didn't you?

This place smells like a sewer.

Do you smell it?


It's a strong smell.

We can open

the window.

Is there even

a window here?

We can move to

another room.

Never mind.

We can move.

We're on our honeymoon!

Good morning...

- Did I wake you?

- No, no.

- Can I come in for a minute?

- Sure...

- Where's your boyfriend?

- Gone.

I see you're cleaning.

Do you want

something to drink?

No, no, I just came to tell you

that I'm raising the rent.

In the entire building.

Just by 30 dollars, that's all...

The whole market went up,

it's not my doing.

You manage a wedding catering service,

don't you? There's money in that.

I'm a waitress,

not a manager.

but you will be one day,

you're a smart girl.

I have to run

before they tow my car.

The ceiling is leaking.

- What ceiling?

- Right here, next to the kitchen.

I'll send my plumber over.


You should answer,

it might be important.

- Batya...

- Mom, can we talk later?

Why later?

Did something happen?


Did you get

my invitation?

What invitation?

To my fundraiser.

Yeah... I got it.

Do I look

okay in the picture?



I just want them to buy tickets,

I'm working my ass off on this...


It's tomorrow,

don't forget.

It's an invitation for two.

Amir should come too.

He won't come.

Why not?


works nights.

That's too bad...

So I'll leave you a single invite.

There's a big demand for them.

I have to make more phone calls.

We'll talk?

- Hi, Menachem.

- Hello.

I won't make it

to Tel-Aviv today.

Yaroni is sick

and Ariel is at work...

That's okay.

Tell Mom I'll be over

on the weekend.

I hope she

recognizes you.



What's going on with her?

I'm on my way to her,

I'm bringing her a Philippine woman.

Did she ask for one?

Mom doesn't ask for anything.

You know her.


Mom, I want you to meet...

What was your name?

- Is it your woman?

- Yours.

She'll help you.

No... No...

Save your money.

For your home, for your children.

I don't have any

children, Mom.

Why not?

Why not?

What happened

to your face?

It's from a long

time ago, Mom.

Who did this to you?

The Syrians...

The Syrians...

- Your woman?

- Yes, Mom, yes.

What's your name?

What's your name?

Where is your mother?

Your father?

Did you run away?

She came out of the sea.

She doesn't speak.

- Please don't interrupt me.

- Sorry.

Let's see...

Hello, this is Sergeant Antebi,

Tel Aviv police.

We found a girl wandering on the beach.

She doesn't speak.

Can you send someone over

to get her?

- I don't know how old she is.

- She's five.

She's fi...

I see... Thanks.

It's a problem.

It's Friday.

Social services don't

work on weekends.

Can you keep

her for two days?

I work nights.

I can't take her to work with me.

I see.

Okay, we'll leave

her here for now.

You can go.


No, I didn't forget.

Tell me something,

how do you

know she's five?


We end up throwing

it all away.

So ask each one

to bring something.

Are you coming to bed?

What a strange hotel.

Does it smell here too?


But we are right on the coast,

yet we can't see the sea.

We can't see anything now.

It's dark.

Come to bed.

It's so noisy...


The street,

don't you hear it?

I'm beat.

We're right on

the main road.

Tomorrow I'll ask for another room

on a higher floor, okay?

I'll never fall

asleep here.

Are you tired?

Let's take this off.

Okay, we won't.

do you want to sleep?

In this day and

age of plenty,

it's hard to believe

that some people have nothing.

Every mother wants to give her child

the world, but not everyone can.

For some children,

this is a home and a bed.

And this is breakfast,

lunch and dinner.

On October 30th,

fundraising day,

we all open our hearts

and wallets.

Because everyone deserves

a roof over their heads.

To purchase a golden roof pin

or a key chain,

send a text

message to 0606.

Did I look okay on TV?



- What's going on with you?

- I'm fine.

No, you're not.

You can talk to me, I'm your mother.

Really, I'm fine.

I couldn't talk to my mother,

but you can.

if you want,

I could pay for therapy.

What's funny?

You don't believe in therapy?

No, no.

What is it, then?

Where are the clothes I had

when I was little?

Your clothes?

At your father's.


At Dad's?

Knowing him,

he probably threw them away.
