Tzipora and Jacob

Gitit spent 18 months filming her parents, Jacob and Tzipora, who after 50 years of marriage are forced to confront repressed fears and frustrations. Jacob has suffered a stroke, and after months of rehabilitation returns home in a wheelchair, accompanied by a live-in Filipino caregiver. Tzipora refuses to accept this new reality – a changed husband, a changed relationship and a changed home, and, feeling helpless and depressed, considers leaving. A penetrating look at a relationship in crisis, told through a daughter’s eyes.
