Lady Titi

Lady Titi

It seems that race and racism are issues that do not disappear from the news all over the world. But Worko does not care about race. He is a 27-year-old man from Ethiopian origin who lives in Tel Aviv and has one dream – to become a famous singer. He borrows money to create a video-clip that he thinks will brings him his big break. Meanwhile, the people he borrowed the money from are catching up with him and threaten his life. Worko realizes he doesn’t have a way to return the money, so he decides to run and hide where his mother lives and where he grew up, a neighborhood which is an Ethiopian ghetto. When the underworld thugs arrive and try to find him in the ghetto, Worko dresses up as a sexy and provocative woman named “Titi” and becomes a coordinator for an Ethiopian women empowerment group. This is the moment when he meets the love of his life.
