Yena Lee joins Olivia Salazar-Winspear to talk about Apple TV+'s latest Israeli show "Losing Alice". The eight-part mini-series centres around Alice, a once-critically-acclaimed filmmaker and her obsession with a young, sexy and extremely talented scriptwriter called Sophie. "Losing Alice" is a modern, female twist on the legend of Faust as viewers get to see just how far Alice is willing to go to achieve success.
