Hide and Seek

A group of women from the Jaffa C Community Theater put on the play “Hide and Seek,” using pain, humor and their professional acting abilities. Their story reflects the culture of their neighborhood, with a special focus on the problems these women face as wives. By following the cast hard at work up until the opening night, the film reveals three strong women on a course of self-discovery leading to a whole new life. The changes they experience often include bitter struggles with their husbands, who are forced to contend with a new breed of independent women that upsets long-established traditions of home life.
