A multiple prizewinner and directed by "Srugim" creator Laizy Shapira, "Eicha" is the story of religious girl whose unusual name, Eicha, (the Hebrew title of the Biblical scroll of Lamentations) causes her angst and embarrassment.  On reaching her 18th birthday, which is also the fast of Tisha B'Av, Eicha decides to formally change her name to try and establish a new identity. But the process turns out to be more complicated than she expected.
