The world is wondrously strange in this tender new drama from Israeli fabulist
Shemi Zarhin (
Aviva My Love, Noodle). An ambitious multi-strand tale about storytelling—and a fractured family—unfolds in a friendly Tiberias, where reality and fantasy intertwine. Told with precision, the connections between the characters and stories grow in richness and complexity as the film progresses. A sharp sense of humor enriches this melancholy yet inspiring film that is a gigantic box office hit in Israel. Featuring an ensemble cast led by
Yehezkel Lazarov, and
Moshe Ivgy, the film earned a record-setting 15 Israeli Academy Awards nominations.
