Greener Pastures
Written and directed by: Matan Guggenheim and Assaf Abiri
(Israel 2020, 88 mins, Hebrew, English subtitles)

Main Cast: Shlomo Baraba, Joy Rieger,  Dov Glickman, Gadi Yagil, Alon Neuman.


Dov (79), a widower, is forced by his family to move to a nursing home – and there’s nothing he can do or say about it. He’s broke since he lost his pension savings, and he blames the state for it. The nursing home feels like a prison, and all Dov can think about is getting out of there, buy his old house back and live there ‘till he dies. When he notices that all his fellow residents smoke legal medical cannabis, he realizes that weed will be his salvation – selling it, not smoking it. When love, cops and gangsters come into play, Dov finds himself at a crossroads: Will he risk it all to make his dream come true?
