It isn't entirely a linear narrative, but the assembled pieces complete a narrative of a family in Israel who aren't exactly dysfunctional. Maybe it is the society as a whole that's dysfunctional. From the director of The Band's Visit, this film is dedicated to the memory of Ronit Elkabetz.
This is one of those multi-marrative works that feels like a collection of incomplete stories bound together to make a feature-length film.

Plus, each story has a different and distinct tone, making the shifts between them a most jarring experience.
