It’s Haifa in the summer of ’68. Sixteenyear-old Arik finds himself working for a mysterious matchmaker, survivor. This is 1960s Israeli society, where echoes of the Holocaust meet the summer of free love. An alluring and joyous, yet sobering coming-of-age comedy/drama that will stay with you long after the credits have rolled.
