    The film tells a story of a young man who was accused of sexually assaulting a woman.
    The actress and her family arrived in Israel prior to the Tel-Aviv Cinematheque screening of the film, and Gainsbourg, who has a passion for photography, made use of her time by traveling to southern Israel and to capture the sand dunes and the sunsets.
    The screening of Gainsbourg’s new film was attended by many Israeli actors like Yaron Brovinsky, Meirav Shirom, Yali Sobol and Hanny Nahmias, who arrived to show their support and take part of a post screening question and answer session with the film’s actors and crew.

    The French star is the daughter of English actress Jane Birkin and French musician Serge Gainsbourg.
    Gainsbourg gained mainstream prominence after working with director Lars von Trier on his 2013 film Nymphomaniac, in which she played the title role. The five-hour film depicts the life of a sex addict from youth to middle age.
    To produce scenes of simulated sex, von Trier used digital compositing to superimpose the genitals of pornographic film actors onto the bodies of the film's actors
