Holocaust survivor Yankele Bride makes his living as a matchmaker and a smuggler. Sixteen-year-old Arik needs a summer job, and finds employment with Bride as a scout for possible clients. The job provides him with cash and an education about prostitution, illegal gambling and love. Set in Haifa in 1968, this coming of age story introduces Arik to a damaged group of characters in need of redemption and healing from one of history’s greatest tragedies. Directed by Kaspar Heidelbach, this film won the Ophir Award for Best Actor (Adir Miller) and Best Actress (Maya Dagan).
