Jellyfish (Hebrew: ?????? ; Meduzot) is a 2007 Israeli film based on a story by Shira Geffen and directed by her husband,Etgar Keret. The film tells the story of three women in Tel Aviv whose intersecting lives paint an unlikely portrait of modern Israeli life. Batya, a waitress at weddings, comes across a mute child who seemingly emerges from the sea. Keren, a bride whose wedding Batya worked at, breaks her leg climbing out of bathroom stall and ruins her dream honeymoon in the process. And Joy, a Filipina domestic, attends to her employer with whom she struggles to communicate. Poetic imagery draws connections between the lives of these women, all of whom find solace in the sea.
