Pickles

This is the story of eight Israeli Arab widows forced to enter the workforce for the first time with no vocational training.
As widows with no income, they are condemned to stay at home and raise their children on a meager social security allowance. The film tracks the progress and development of the unconventional pickle jar factory the women decide to create as they work to change their fate, and how their plan affects their personal lives – family weddings, bereavement, loneliness and some serious fun.
