Greener Pastures (Sheifa Lehaim)

Greener Pastures

Dov is forced by his family to move to a nursing home – and there’s nothing he can do or say about it. He’s broke since he lost his pension savings, and he blames the state for it. The nursing home feels like a prison, and all Dov can think about is getting out of there and buying his old house back. When he notices that all his fellow residents smoke legal medical marijuana, he realises that weed will be his salvation – selling it, not smoking it.

When love, cops and gangsters come into play, Dov finds himself at a crossroads: will he risk it all to make his dream come true?

A light-hearted and high spirited Israeli comedy.
