Synopsis

Winner of an Israeli Academy Award in 2015 and nominated for nine others, Amir Wolf’s electrifying directorial debut is an intelligent and pacey thriller with screen-stealing performances from Israeli stars Gila Almagor and Mali Levi. After the body of an elderly man is discovered in a river with a mysterious tattoo, a young police detective is persuaded to take on the case. Cleverly entwining past and present, this is an intriguing and engrossing film that keeps you guessing until the final moment.
