Synopsis
Maksim, a sleep addict, asks his parents to help him buy a pizza place he co-owns. As soon as the work begins, the parents realize they will have to invest a lot more than just money. With dad as the delivery boy and mom as the oven cleaner, the film creates a true profile of the average Israeli family in the new millennium. Perhaps the same applies to your home and family?
