Bena

Narrative | 2009 | 84 min.
Directed by: Niv Klainer

Amos is a mental health worker, widower, and father to Yurik, a mentally ill teenager. One day, while visiting one of his patients, Amos discovers Bena, an illegal Thai immigrant. Instead of turning her in, Amos brings her home to care for Yurik. As a fragile, warm and intimate relationship develops between Bena & Amos, Yurik grows jealous and starts to abuse Bena. With no one to turn to, and Amos' refusing to hospitalize Yurik, Bena remains trapped.
