Na'ama is seventeen.
She lives in a sleepy suburbia. She is bored.
With detached parents and a rebellious older sister, her life at home is a mess.
It all changes when a new girl appears at school. She's introduced to a world of drugs, lesbians and sex.  She's thrilled. Her life, at last, becomes exciting. Is it going to last?
Barash is a coming of age story, planted in the heart of Israeli society, about a young woman who struggles to find her self-identity in an environment that has different ideas about sex, drugs and love.
