Melting Away

Feature Film Israel 2011

Coming back home one night, outside the door Assaf finds three bags containing the clothes and women's accessorizes that he kept hidden in his bedroom. The door is locked. His father has discovered his secret and decided that he is no longer welcome in that house. Four years later, his mother contacts an investigating agency: she wants to find Assaf and bring him to the bedside of his father who has terminal cancer. This is how she discovers that Assaf is now Anna, a fascinating transgender chanteuse who performs in Tel Aviv night clubs. Her mother's efforts to reconcile Anna to her father are in vain: she adamantly refuses to meet him. A few days later, however, a new nurse enters the man's room. She is actually Anna, who wants to win back her father's heart. This is the first film in the history of Israeli cinema to show, with courage and simplicity, the relationship between a transgender character and his/her family.
