The play is based on the autobiography of Efrat Tilma, one of the first transgendered women in Israel.

Efrat has been volunteering for years as a policewoman in the Tel Aviv district police, but none of her coworkers know she was born in a male body. One night her best friend is arrested. The charged encounter with her transsexual friend forces Efrat to confront her past, which she has struggled all her life to hide.

The play follows key moments in Efrat’s life, providing a rare glimpse into her brave and extraordinary life. Efrat is portrayed by several actors.

The show premiered at Habima National Theatre during the 2017 Pride events, in cooperation with the LGBTQ Center, and won best show at the Theatrical Autumn Festival 2018.
