2016 Official Movie Trailer (HD)


The film attacked the company without human. The staff was killed in the suicide attack, the HR manager was ignorant.

A typical road film, both relaxed funny paragraphs and touch one deeply in the heart.

For some of vagabonds, where is their root? When they die, are they willing to back home to sleep, or rather stay in different places?

Israel’s films i have watched often are too focused on their own history and memory of war, but this film gives me a very different feeling.

Humble abode, sister friend, divorced husband and good-for-nothing son, we can see all sorts of helpless of a women who live in a foreign country. More special is the last short video on the phone of her son, she smiles so bright, so strong. A woman who struggles to survive in the world, but sudden end of her life in the suicide where left thousands of miles away from home, don’t know how many days have passed when her bones lying in the hospital morgue, until her company’s Human Resources Manager was found. In the end, no one knows where she really want her bones buried: In his hometown of Romania, or Jerusalem where she had left passion and love.
