About the Film:FacebookRSVPFinal2018

Steve and Chuma, two small-time “protection” collectors for a Jerusalem crime ring, find themselves the sole survivors of a terrorist attack at a restaurant they were in the middle of shaking down. Later, while giving thanks at the Western Wall, Steve grabs a prayer note from a crevice between two stones and tells Chuma their survival is a sign from G-d they should quit the mob. Chuma agrees, but believes they must also fulfill the wish in the stolen note. Thus begins the pair’s comedic and touching journey of wish fulfillment as partners-in-crime turn into angels-in-arms and vow to change their ways. They return to the Wall over and over again to find worthy prospects for tough-guy benevolence. This is  the first feature film for hit-makers Guy Amir and Hanan Savyon, acclaimed writers of several big Israeli TV hits (i.e., Scarred, Asfur), who co- wrote and star in this delightful caper.
