SYNOPSIS:

After 30 years at sea, single dad Aharon Avital arrives home in time for the birth of his first grandchild. Appointed head of the Maritime Department at the Ashdod port, Aharon immediately clashes with Azulay, the Big Man at the port, a corrupt, warmhearted bully whose men admire him. Strong headed men and determined women inhabit a city and a port built by immigrants from across the world in Home Port, a sun drenched and visceral social drama about building a life on unstable ground.
