“Fascinating, funny, intricately plotted, lively and quite moving.” – The Jerusalem Post

Immigration officer Meir Cohen must examine his own values when he is tasked with deporting African labor immigrants. A hard- working man struggling to make ends meet, he finds himself at odds with his country’s new brutal policies. The real lives of foreign workers in Israel is revealed in this ironic yet compassionate film about belonging and upheaval, home and family.

Yossi Marshek was nominated for an Ophir (Israeli Oscar) for his performance as Meir.
