Patrick Stewart (X-Men, Star Trek: The Next Generation) shows nothing brings family together like a bank heist.

A hilariously witty Israeli crime comedy proves a little bit of crazy can be a good thing; a lot can be even better. Yonotan, a twelve-year-old socially awkward genius, feels his world crumbling beneath his feet. Between witnessing his father’s work-related death at the bank and his clueless mother struggling to keep their house, he finds the only people willing (dare say wild enough) to help fix everything. His cranky grandfather (Sasson Gabai, The Band’s Visit), a former member of Lehi, a militant Zionist group, an eccentric thespian (Stewart) and a wily friend (Moni Moshonov, We Own the Night) hatch a Robin Hood-style scheme to rob the bank! Our only warning: Prepare to laugh.
