Aviva is a young Parisian who develops an online romance with New Yorker, Eden. After a long-distance courtship they meet in person, fall in love, and eventually marry. The two characters are played by four different dancers/actors simultaneously. During their growing relationship, they grapple with their shifting masculine and feminine sides battling for primacy—both inside and outside their bodies. Their struggle finds expression through movement as well as dialogue.
Aviva captures our restless, frenzied and fluid time, demystifying the male-female dynamic and laying it bare. Writer-director Boaz Yakin (Fresh, A Price Above Rubies, Remember the Titans) has crafted a relationship movie that exists in its own category, exploring the gender dynamics within two unforgettable characters who refuse to be contained by standard definitions, putting their relationship to the ultimate test.
