Jenny & Jenny

Jenny and Jenny meet every day; Jenny and Jenny speak every day; Jenny and Jenny correspond; Jenny and Jenny share heartbreaks and happy times. Jenny and Jenny are 17-years-old cousins, living in the town of Bat Yam. This film follows one summer in their lives as they make the transition from girlhood to womanhood.  How do they interpret the world? What kind of emerging awareness do they have of their position as women? What do they love, and what can they tolerate? What are their dreams and what are their fears? How do they, and we, perceive the tragic side of being a woman, along with the charm that it entails? And what is the very thirst for life, the vigor, and the passion quivering within them that this film tries to capture?
