About The Film

Travel writer Michael (John Benjamin Hickey, The Big C, The Good Wife) arrives in Tel Aviv on assignment after suffering a personal tragedy. He just wants to grieve, do his research quietly, and go home. But when he sublets a flat from Tomer, a handsome film student who has nowhere else to stay, Michael offers him the couch in exchange for showing him around the energetic local scene. They couldn't be more different, though: Michael, 55, is married and long settled into life with his husband back home, while Tomer is young and messy, a free spirit with little responsibility. Over seven days, they form an intense bond that transforms both of their lives in unexpected ways. The latest film from Eytan Fox (YOSSI & JAGGER, WALK ON WATER, THE BUBBLE) evokes humor, charm, and human connection.
