"Daisy Bitch" is the stage name of a young Israeli drag queen named Eli Abergel. The film documents Eli's life for two years, enters his personal world behind the costumes and make-up, and turns into a psychological journey which reveals his unique and complex relationship with his conservative Jewish mother, Jacqueline. Coming to terms with her son's strange lifestyle leads to a turning point in their lives. A huge gap exist between Eli's two worlds: on the one hand, the world of the homo-lesbian community in Tel Aviv and on the other, living as an IDF solider in a low socio-economic, conservative family from a suburban proletarian town. The conflict that emerges from within this impossible combination reaches its climax at the end of the film.
