Alex, a young Parisian drug-dealer, who is continually stuck paying off his brother Isaac's debts, decides that moving to Israel might be the only way for him to leave his troubles behind him.  But first he must raise enough money and accomplish his "aliyah" (the term for the immigration of Diaspora Jews to Israel) - which involves, among other things, Hebrew lessons and connecting to his Jewish roots. (Followed by talkbacks)
