Months of miserable living in the prison-like nursing home and the loss of a pension force 75-year-old widower Dov to think outside of the box to move back into his old home. When he decides to sell the state-sponsored cannabis that his nursing home roommates smoke, a chain of unexpected events unfolds, involving untimely romance, feuds with the local mafia, and multiple mishaps with the police. Dov’s new side hustle leads to some stunning conclusions, leading him through entanglement with the question: Is he willing to risk everything for the life that he dreams of? Dov’s unconventional money-making scheme features an astonishing take on one’s desperate attempt to escape their current situation.

Main cast includes Shlomo Baraba, Joy Rieger, Dov Glickman, Gadi Yagil, and Alon Neuman.
