Description: A girl struggles not to make the same mistakes that have tainted her mother's life in this drama from Israel. Or (Dana Ivgy) is a high-school-age girl living in a small Tel Aviv apartment with her mother Ruthie (Ronit Elkabetz). Ruthie has spent most of her life working as a prostitute, but with her health on the decline, Or has been forced to become the primary breadwinner in the household, washing dishes, cleaning an apartment building and collecting deposit bottles to help pay the rent when she's not busy with her studies. While Or has lined Ruthie up with a job as a domestic, Ruthie hates the work and finds herself drawn back into her life on the street, much to her daughter's displeasure. Meanwhile, Or has fallen in love with Ido (Meshar Cohen), a boy from her school, but Ido's mother knows what Ruthie does for a living, and doesn't approve of her son dating the daughter of a prostitute, especially as Or finds herself increasingly attracted to Ido. Or (My Treasure) was the first feature film from Israeli writer and director Keren Yedaya.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
