Plot Summary

David is discharged from the army after serving for 27 years. He returns to his family after being distanced from them for years and tries to find himself in his new civilian life. He believes that he will find his way in some managerial position in the private sector, but he has difficulties adapting to the pace of the “new Israel”, a competitive culture obsessed with success and money. More often than not, he finds himself alone at home, watching a morning TV-show or listening to the radio. When a friend suggests working as a salesman, he sees this as an opportunity to get his foot into the door of the business world and make something of himself. But it soon turns out a bitter failure. Also the rest of the family gets deeply into trouble: His daughter tries to overcome boredom and futility by reaching out beyond the mountains and hills, and becomes entangled in an emotional and political mess. His wife, a school teacher, embarks on an affair with one of her students, humiliating herself, and subsequently provoking her son to a violent act of vengeance. Good people living in a bad reality, helplessly caught in the maze of today’s Israel.

It has been selected to be screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival
