Michal Aviad’s Working Woman is an Israeli take on the #MeToo movement that has taken off in America. Orna is the mother of three children, with a husband who is struggling to make his new restaurant successful. She feels lucky to have landed a position in a luxury real estate firm in Jerusalem and soon proves her worth to her high-powered boss, Benny. But success comes with escalating sexual advances from Benny and Orna is forced to choose between rebutting her boss or advancing her career and thus risking her marriage.
