New Directors Competition
A mix of fiction and documentary, the film follows filmmaker Assaf, who is about to have his first child. Alongside his family, he receives the news that there is an imminent Iranian attack on Tel Aviv. His father, Yoel, wants to take everybody to a safe place, in Jerusalem. Before they go, however, Assaf manages to convince Yoel to play the main role in his new movie, which melts the fiction world into a bittersweet reality.
