Room 6

Dr. Tamar Safra is a gynaeco-oncologist. She cures women from cancer, but spends most of her time at the clinic telling one patient after the other how much time they have to live. She sees a patient every 15 minutes, sometimes 20 patients a day like in an assembly line. Huge dramas are confined into one moment on both sides of the table. From the patient’s point of view, her life is unique, yet from Dr. Safra’s point of view, the patient – as dear as she would be – is another name on the infinite stack of files piling on her desk. One day she meets Meirav Refael, a beautiful young woman determined to beat the statistics. Will Meirav win? Will Dr. Safra start believing in miracles?
