A young Israeli, Yoav, comes to Paris in the hopes of starting a new life and completely forget everything that connects him to his homeland. On the first night, he loses all his things and money, but young French couple helps him out with fashionable clothes and a wad of euros. Yoav truly starts from square one, refuses to speak Hebrew, and relies on a French dictionary as his guide through this new and foreign world, where he desperately wants to be accepted

This passionate, bold, uncompromising, impressive, and singular film was the winner at the 2019 Berlin Film Festival.
