Back in Israel after a thirty-year absence, seaman Aaron is determined to fix his broken relationship with his daughter and fight corruption at the Ashdod port, where he accepts a managerial position. His excitement at working with Azoulay, the militant union leader and an old family friend, soon turns into resentment, followed by a violent conflict. Director Erez Tadmor creates a taut drama about modern working conditions, the sinister nature of privatisation and the way in which ideology can tear even the closest relationships apart.
