Set in 1980, Lost Islands is a comical autobiography that follows an Israeli family of five children. Erez, one of the twins, sabotages the father’s car and is then involved in a car accident that leaves the father a cripple. Erez then attempts to escape a variety of things – his affection for a girl, his twin brother and nursing his father. He enrolls in the army and undergoes terrible events that force him to mature and finally understand that there is no escape from the decision: whether to pursue your dreams or keep allegiance to your family.
