Cast overview:
Alia Edery Alia Edery ... Herself


Alia is an aging Moroccan immigrant in Israel who cannot leave the confines of her council flat because her deteriorating health prevents her from climbing down a small flight of stairs. For ten long, hard years Alia fought to acquire her home from the State of Israel and now, half a century later, this same home has become her prison. But Alia is determined to live. Despite the physical and linguistic barriers that isolate her from society, she manages to expand her narrowing world using a variety of artistic activities. In a continuous visual journey spanning a decade, Alia weaves her memoirs like a rich and colorful quilt, encompassing the collective stories of the Jewish Moroccan immigrant community in Israel and of all women at the fringes of society.
