Ella La Telenovela is a segment of a fictional Latin American-style soap opera, or telenovela, centered on a mysterious maid who never actually makes an appearance.
The actors are foreign workers who have legally or illegally come to Israel for work. Through dialogue and improvisational rehearsals, Kaplun combined their personal stories into a fictive narrative, which they in turn act out.
