Three elderly men and grandson Yonatan find themselves stuck together in a Jerusalem nursing home.

The kid is a genius, but stammers and is bullied at school. Yonatan’s grandfather, Eliahu, whom he had never met, is a former member of the Lehi (pre-State Jewish underground), and a cold person. Eliahu’s best friend from Lehi, Nick, is full of ambition and passion that will never materialize; and Eliahu’s English brother-in-law, a has-been, third-rate actor in debt for 232,000 euros.

There’s one thing keeping them together – they all want to rob the bank that employed Yonatan’s deceased father to avenge it for not paying the Yonatan’s mother compensation for his dad’s death, due to the “small print” in his employment contract. And they want the money to make their last wish come true.

"This isn't the first movie about old men who rob a bank, nor the second. But Reshef Levi comes by the theme honestly" -Nozz

"What I found interesting was the depth of tragedy, characterisation and realistic exchanges along with what was essentially slapstick."

"An Entertaining motion picture to the extent that I've managed to forgot when was the last time I had so many laughs watching an Israeli movie. This is a truly Israeli-well-made-quality movie featuring the best actors as could ever be casted to such a movie!"
