Family Matters

Two men, one woman and a baby constitute the formula for the alternative family documented in this film. Dafna, a single straight musician, is fed up with waiting for her prince charming. Her solution: teaming up with Itamar, a homosexual lawyer and actor, in order to have a baby. The third side of this dramatic triangle is Kai, a German flight purser and Itamar’s partner for the past ten years. After Dafna finally becomes pregnant, the relationship between the three rollercoasters as this fascinating, moving story progresses.
