They’ve barely arrived in New York, but Nicky and Uri, two young Israelis, are already surviving by shoplifting. After getting into scrapes, they leave Manhattan and end up in a seedy apartment in Brooklyn.
Max, an authoritarian, cynical man stuck in a wheelchair, manages the building. His brother-in-law, Harold Fisher, a lonely, timid guy, sees to the building’s maintenance and does odd jobs around the place.
One evening, during an argument with Uri, Nicky accidentally shoots herself in the leg. The young man panics and runs away. Harold comes rushing to Nicky’s rescue. He looks after her, gets her injury treated, then helps her to look for a job. He gradually starts to see her in a different light.
Although Max is against it, a tender relationship starts to develop between these two fragile people who have been bruised by life. –uniFrance
