Winner of 11 Israeli Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress and Best Screenplay, Nina's Tragedies is Savi Gabizon's strikingly original and bittersweet comedy about a young boy coming-of-age.
Sensitive 14 year-old Nadav is experiencing an intensely emotional time in his life. He has been asked by his wild, recently divorced mother Alona Anat Waxman to move in with his Aunt Nina (the luminous Ayelet July Zurer) to help comfort her following the death of her husband in a terrorist attack. Nadav is happy to comply since he has a hopeless crush on his stunning aunt. Through his eyes, we share Nina's pain over the death of her husband, her joy at the kindling of a new romance, and her discovery that finding true happiness is never as easy as it seems.
