Lieutenant-Colonel David Greenbaum is discharged after serving for 27 years, returning to his family who are more used to his absence than his presence. When a friend suggests working as a salesman, he sees this as an opportunity to get his foot into the door of the business world and make something of himself. But things don’t turn out as he expects. An accomplished and impressive film from one of Israel’s leading young directors about decent people living in a difficult reality.
