Meir Cohen, a police officer barely earning a living, returns from a work trip to Buchenwald and receives a new assignment to find and deport Tel Aviv’s African migrant workers. An Israeli Filipino longing to join the army, a taxi driver facing his family’s migration, and a veteran African migrant worker forced to decide whether to leave or stay. Noam Kaplan delicately sketches a heartfelt portrait of four men in crisis, raising questions of belonging, uprooting, exile, home and family.
