    • Synopsis
    • Adopted in Brazil in the ‘80’s, four Israeli women return to their search for their biological mothers and their roots. Ayelet, who was adopted in Rio de Janeiro when she was four, gave the director her photo, taken on the day of her adoption, which was then published in a Brazilian daily with the caption “do you know me?”
      The following day, the director receives an email from a Brazilian woman. Daniela supposedly had her original adoption papers, but then she learns the truth is more complicated. Anna and Alma had the name and address of a woman in northern Brazil, but no way of getting there. Will they meet their biological mothers?
