Hill Start (Zinuk Ba Aliyah)

Hill Start

“The characters are so likable and the acting is so good that it is several cuts above the usual formula comedy.” – The Jerusalem Post

When Ora, a middle-aged marathon runner and matriarch of a wealthy family, goes into a coma following a car accident, it forever changes the lives of her devoted children. Ari and Reli postpone their wedding, Micha becomes obsessed with a beautiful driving instructor, Shlomit swoons over a Palestinian pop star, and everyone tries hard to get their lives in order for their comatose mother in this winning comic drama.
