PRINCESS is a deeply moving film that delves into a complex world of intolerable love, sensuality, sexuality and family. It tells the story of Adar, a 12-year-old girl who finds herself the center of attention in her workaholic mother’s bohemian home. However, the attention is misplaced. Hungry for love and connection, Adar finds herself drawn into the fun and games of her over attentive stepfather and a haze of confusing sexual tension begins to surround her. She is changing, but not of her own volition. Looking for a way out, Adar meets the homeless Alan, a dreamy, mysterious boy who happens to be her mirror image, and brings him home. The two embark on a dark journey between childhood and adolescence, reality and fantasy, which will forever change Adar's concept of ‘family’.
