Hunting Elephants

Three elderly and a child, finding themselves stuck together in a nursing home in Jerusalem. On the one hand, the kid (Gil Blank) which is genius, but socially retarded, and on the other hand, his grandfather (Sasson Gabai), whom he had never met, an x member in the Lehi organization and a cold person. With them – the granfather’s best friend from Lehi (Moni Moshonov), full of ambition and passion which will never materialize, and the boy’s English uncle (Patrick Stewart), a depressed and poor actor who owed 232,000 euro. But there’s one thing keeping them together – they all want to rob a bank. They want to avenge it for not paying the boy compensation for his dad’s death, only due to the tiny letters. And they want the money to make their last wished come true.
