Michael, a travel columnist for The New York Times, goes to Tel Aviv to write an article after suffering a tragedy. He just wants to do his research and go home. But when he sublets an apartment from Tomer, a young film student, he finds himself drawn into the life of the city. Superficially, the two men couldn’t be more different. Michael is an established journalist who has been with his partner for decades. He came of age during the years when AIDS was ravaging the gay community and he appreciates how much things have changed. Tomer struggles to earn a living and is still trying to figure out what kind of films he wants to make; he is a freewheeling, ambitious, mixed-up young man whose love of marijuana and sex seems a world away from Michael’s. He nevertheless offers to guide him around the city and they soon find they have more in common than they thought. This deft comedy of manners reveals much about attitudes to love, life and sex between two generations of gay men. The director, Eytan Fox, was born in New York City and raised in Israel. Through this story, he examines different sides of his own identity.
