Guy Amir and Hanan Savyon, the acclaimed writers and stars behind Israeli TV mega-hits such as Scarred, Asfur, and Ma Bakarish, play partners in crime in this hilarious, politically incorrect caper. Maktub means fate, and certainly the destiny of these two small-time enforcers for a Jerusalem mob protection racket irrevocably changes when they survive a suicide bombing and wind up fulfilling the wishes of those leaving notes at the Wailing Wall.
Director: Oded Raz. Screenwriters: Guy Amir and Hanan Savyon
