When his cousin tells him he's opening a restaurant in Tel Aviv, Alex must quickly find enough money and accomplish his aliyah, his return to Israel. Torn between making his aliyah, his lucrative drug selling, his complicated love life and a destructive brother, Alex will have to find his own way and make a final decision.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Far from being the Promised Land, Israel represents a shaky new beginning in a country Alex barely knows. This smart, sober movie makes you feel the full weight of the challenges he faces. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jun 13, 2013

Fresh: It's the kind of serious, thoughtful, yet accessible portrait we see all too little of these days. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Jun 19, 2013

Fresh: A marvelous film, stripped of false urgency. – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, Jun 11, 2013

Rotten: A character piece should have some sense of a character's who, what and why, right? – David Fear, Time Out, Jun 11, 2013
