Israeli comedic-genius Shlomo Bar-Aba stars in this tragic-comic story of the bourgeois Geva family from Jerusalem. Following a car accident, the mother falls into a coma, leaving behind her a broken family – two kids, a husband and a daughter in-law to be – all willing to do anything for her to wake up. All the while, tempers flare, passions run high, a wedding looms and… a driving test is required.
