Directed by Elie Wajeman | 2012

With Adele Haenel, Cédric Kahn, Pio Marmaï

Alex lives in a working-class Paris neighborhood, selling drugs and paying off his brother’s debts. When his cousin returns from military service in Israel, he invites Alex to Tel Aviv to help him open a restaurant. But in order to leave, Alex must accomplish his aliyah by migrating to Israel and reconnecting with his Jewish roots. Torn between a life in Paris and Israel, Alex struggles to find his way and make a decision. This tense, accomplished debut feature premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and features a stellar performance by French auteur Cédric Kahn (Red Lights). US Premiere!
