One morning, Naftali (Tzahi Grad from Big Bad Wolves), a local media personality, collects a Palestinian laborer named Fahed (Ala Dakka from Beyond the Mountains and Hills and brings him home to patch up the crumbling studio on the grounds of his rented property in an Israeli village. Later that day, a young woman who lives nearby has been assaulted and fingers immediately point to Fahed. Initially, Naftali’s decent impulses compel him to defend Fahed. But very soon, cracks begin to show in his liberal façade and begin to persuade Naftali to question his own judgement.
Director Tzahi Grad

Tzahi Grad was born and raised in Jerusalem. He travelled to North America and Africa both before and after completing his military service as a paratrooper. He also served during the Lebanon War. He is perhaps best known to international audiences for his starring role in the breakout hit Big Bad Wolves, which Quentin Tarantino called the best film of 2013.
