Comedy, crime and drama combine in this feisty tale about what happens when the small guy stands up to the bully and gets his revenge. On the morning of Holocaust Memorial Day Michael Kleinhouse (Gal Zaid), an out-of-work writer, is out in his car with his wife Tamar (Keren Mor) when she is almost killed by a reckless driver. Michael’s initial reluctance to pursue the driver turns into a frenetic chase to seek revenge, which is altogether uncharacteristic for this mild mannered man who rarely stands his ground.
From then on the day goes downhill fast, and Michael becomes increasingly violent as he is caught up with a group of gangsters who are entirely out of his league. Director Grad maintains the tension throughout the film which ultimately serves as an original parody of the archetypal macho Israeli guy. Finally, Tamar is impressed by the way Michael responds to the new dangers and challenges in their lives but remains oblivious to the increasing danger that threatens them. JI
