This is a story of fatherhood. Ovadia, an Orthodox Jew who knows no fear and is the toughest bouncer in a Tel Aviv night club, has a dream and a mission – to become a father. He and his wife, Rachel have been trying to become pregnant for 5 years. Frustrated and ready to give up, Ovadia is offered a job by a small-time gangster to be a debt collector. Ovadia sees this as a great opportunity to earn enough money to begin expensive treatments to help Rachel become pregnant. The violent nature of Ovadia’s job takes its toll as he finds himself in a world of crime where his moralities and beliefs are sorely tested as the stakes increase.
