Orna is the mother of three young children with a husband struggling to start his own restaurant. To help support her family she returns to the workplace, landing a job with a former army superior, Benny, who is now a successful real estate developer. While Orna embraces her new position and tries to balance its demands with her home life, she begins to experience escalating sexual harassment from her boss. WORKING WOMAN is a strikingly relevant and global tale in the midst of today’s #MeToo movement, all of which comes out through the empowering performance of Liron Ben Shlush and calculated direction of Michal Aviad.
