Shaul comes up with a creative plan to put a roof over their heads they pose as refugees from the bombarded northern region of Israel, and are taken in by a well-off family in Jerusalem.

Summary

Summary

A precocious teenager's belated reunion with her estranged, eccentric father is complicated by his dishonesty and the 2006 Lebanon War in this quirky slice-of-life drama. Ten years after last seeing her father Shaul (Gur Bentvich), Libby (Elya Inbar) goes to live with him in Israel. Despite being currently homeless, Shaul is determined to give Libby a proper house. To accomplish this, he claims they are a family from the North who have been exiled by war. As a result, Shaul and Libby are taken in by a kindly family in Jerusalem, where they gradually begin to reconnect while maintaining false identities. But as Libby's adolescent angst begins to swell, her fierce determination to confront the many lies in her life threatens to break their tenuous father/daughter bond before it's fully established. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
