A splendid family drama written and directed by the acclaimed novelist and playwright Amanda Sthers with an all star cast and set mainly in Israel. Harry Rosenmerck (Caan) is an American cardiologist who decides to walk away from his loving but dysfunctional family to become a pig farmer in Israel, fully aware of all the controversy that will follow. He leaves behind his estranged son David (Rhys Meyers), a successful gay playwright, his daughter Annabelle (Efrat Dor) who is still studying at the age of 30, and his ex-wife (Arquette). Harry is faced with the wrath of Rabbi Moshe Cattan (Hollander) who condemns his pig farm before the two really get to know each other.
