A tragicomic road movie that tells the story of Gary Razumov, a young architect living in Berlin in total detachment from his past, until sudden notification of his father's death brings him back to Israel. Upon arrival he discovers that he was tricked. His father, a former scientist who spent 20 years in jail on espionage charges, did not die, but had escaped from jail. Wolf, a violent and obsessive General Security agent and Carmi, his young assistant, make it clear to Gary that he will not leave Israel until his father is found. Together with Tom, a young actress he meets in Tel Aviv, Gary is dragged into the search for his father and forced to deal with his traumatic past for the first time.
