The story of a teacher who becomes at first enchanted, and then ultimately consumed by the poetic genius of her five-year-old student. As the titular protagonist, Nira, discovers that her young student, Yoav, has an otherworldly talent for language and poetry, she slowly and progressively becomes interested in cultivating the boy's gift. But when fascination morphs into obsession, Nira pushes the boundaries of her relationship with the boy and his family in an attempt to protect his talent before he passes from boyhood to adolescence, and his purity is lost. Official Selection at the **Cannes Film Festival.** "*Writer-director Nadav Lapid not only makes this rich and rather strange tale convincing on screen, but he does so with the aesthetic prowess of a first-class auteur.*" - Jordan Mintzer, ***Hollywood Reporter***
