This Israeli #1 box office hit garnered a record-breaking 15 Ophir Award nominations! Set in provincial sunny Tiberias, the plot consists of a collection of wonderfully strange vignettes that grow in richness and complexity as the film progresses. The central characters are estranged siblings who have endured childhood abandonment only to face new challenges in adulthood: a widower whose older son has just awakened from a lengthy coma; a radio producer and his terminally-ill Russian girlfriend; and a travel agent whose daughter was killed in an army accident. These narrative strands and diverse personalities initially seem unrelated but gradual knit together in a satisfying and emotional climax.
Vibrant cinematography, a noteworthy score by composer Jonathan Bar-Giora and stellar performances by an ensemble of Israel's top actors make this film a must see.
