The film tells the story of a sensitive and complex relationship between a
mother and her ailing son. Like in Hans Christian Anderson’s fairy tale “The Loveliest
Rose in the World” where a child is looking for a rose to save his mother, the queen who
is in bed dying, so in “Tied Hands” in a reversal of roles a mother goes out on a
desperate search for a little Marijuana, to ease her son’s pain. In her, turbulent, journey
in the streets of Tel-Aviv, old truths from her past come back to life and threaten to break
down a wall of denials behind which, she’s been hiding all her life.
