“Enjoyable surprises up its sleeve.” - Jerusalem Post

Israeli comedic-genius Shlomo Bar-Aba (Academy Award nominee for Footnote) leads a star-studded cast in this outrageous Israeli dramedy as the head of a family about to implode. As their mother lies in a coma as the result of a dramatic car accident, her family meets a wild cast of characters as it goes to any lengths to help her recover. What follows is the feel-good story about a tough father, his gentle son, an unmarried daughter, and a comatose wife. All the while tempers flare, passions run high, and a wedding looms.
