Bengaluru International Film Festival - BIFFES

Synopsis

In Paris, things do not exactly get off to a good start for Yoav. He knocks on the door of a flat, only to discover the place is empty and, while he is taking a bath there, his things are stolen. Yet this young Israeli had arrived with such great expectations. He is determined to get rid of his nationality as quickly as possible. Becoming French, on the other hand, would quite simply mean his salvation. Based on his own experiences, Nadav Lapid explores the challenges of putting down roots in a new place.
