Kirot Synopsis: Galia (Olga Kurylenko of Quantum of Solace) longs to escape her life as a Tel Aviv sex worker and reunite with the young daughter she left behind in Ukraine. With the promise of cash and the return of her passport, she is enlisted to commit murders for Tel Aviv heavies Ronnie and Michel.
Across the hall lives Elinor (Ninet Tayeb), a grocery-store clerk and battered wife who dreams of fleeing her abusive husband. After witnessing one of their domestic altercations, Galia is again acquainted with her shamefaced neighbour at the cash register. The two forge a friendship when Elinor tries to teach Galia to curse in Hebrew. For a few precious hours, the two women forget their exploiters.
