NEW EYES tells the life story of Yafit, a young woman living in Israel who joins the Israeli army to serve heroically for her country. Upon completing her service, she moves to Los Angeles to follow her dream of becoming an actress but finds herself constantly cast only as a Middle Eastern villain. Just as her native country wrestles with the worlds false perceptions, Yafit must decide how far she is willing to go to challenge, change, or accept how others see her, and what she is willing to risk to fulfill her dreams and destiny.
NEW EYES explores universal themes of self-esteem, family, identity and cultural differences. Yafit portrays over 18 characters from over 5 different countries as she conveys her riveting and uplifting story, as she sees the world, and it sees her, through NEW EYES.
