Mika’s Homecoming

“Mika’s Homecoming” tells the story of Mika, a 15-year-old girl who returns with her family to Israel, after living in Los Angeles for several years.
During summer vacation, Mika creates a deep friendship with her new neighbor, Roni. But just before school starts, Mika gets a once-in-a-lifetime offer from Danielle and Netta, the most popular girls in her future class: if she terminates her friendship with Roni, she can join their popular clique. Danielle and Netta demand an immediate decision: does Mika choose to be part of the in-crowd or one of the rejects?
Mika chooses popularity, betrays Roni, and becomes a leading member of the in-group. As the class prepares for a homecoming-style dance that Mika imports from LA, Mika gradually realizes the heavy price she’s paying for social acceptance. She learns to understand her true values, and finally finds the strength in herself to act on them.
