Rami and Avishay, 27 year old friends share an apartment in a small Jerusalem neighborhood. They spend their days smoking and playing on a soccer team made up of losers. In need of money, they get entangled in a drug deal with Sagi, a local gangster, and learn about taking responsibility, loyalty, and friendship. The movie is a humorous view of the colorful, multi-culture, unique and somehow funny Israeli society.
A Film by : Oded Davidoff
(Israel, 2012, 101 Minutes, Color, Hebrew, English subtitles, Cast: Alon Aboutboul, Itay Turgeman, Moshe Ashkenazi, Rami Davidoff ,Tzahi Grad, Yuval Scharf, Michal Gavrielov and Danny Steg)
With the seedy suburbs of Jerusalem as a backdrop, this gritty comedy depicts two young lowlifes - Avishay, the local pizza boy, and his buddy Rami, a lifelong loafer. Their lives, and those of their friends and neighbors, revolve around two holy grails: cheap weed and The Jerusalem Neighborhoods Cup the local amateur soccer league.
As the plot thickens Avishay and Rami become entangled with an irascible soccer coach and with a neighborhood gangster who has a fondness for severed fingers.
The big soccer match approaches and Rami and Avishay find themselves drawn into a battle of class, cultures, and passions. Perhaps this time they will have to see beyond their own petty predicaments if they want to save their lives - or their fingers.
