This is the inspiring story of Lea Gottlieb, Mrs. G, founder and designer of the legendary Gottex swimwear label and empire, started in her tiny Tel Aviv apartment. Gottlieb was a woman full of contradictions, but she knew how to recover from periods of crisis – from surviving the Holocaust, establishing a small factory in Israel, to her phenomenal success abroad. 


The film follows Mrs. G’s incredible creativeness and ascent to worldwide success, alongside her:  dominant personality, complex relationships with her two daughters, who both worked for the family business, her unbridled passion, and how she made complicated personal decisions (for which she paid a heavy price) while trying to keep her business afloat.
