Movie Haiku:Joy (Fuchs) wants to tell her familyís story on the Yom Kippur episode of an Israeli Reality TV Show. Skeptics beware: Janís convinced this film is a deeply metaphorical meditation on Ariel Sharon's role as leader of Kadima ("Forward") in the months before a stroke removed him forever from the world stage.
