"Shines some well-deserved light on a generation that we too often ignore." - The Jewish Chronicle

Nominated for 10 Israeli Ophir Awards, this electrifying murder mystery about con men and cops will leave you guessing until the very end. After the body of an 80-year-old man is found with three stab wounds and a mysterious tattoo, a police detective reluctantly takes on the case. As the plot enticingly alternates between past and present, weaving the story of the criminal investigation with that of the murder victim, unsettling similarities start to emerge between the detective and victim.
