Hill Start

Hill Start

Colorful characters abound in this lighthearted dramedy centered on a wealthy Jerusalem family. This box office comic sensation in Israel brings new meaning to the word dysfunctional.

Plastic surgeon Micha wants an ordinary life. But when he causes a car accident that leaves his wife Ora in a coma while en route to their son’s wedding, things unravel all around him. His anti-social single daughter is obsessed with an Arab TV matinee soap opera actor, and Micha tries valiantly to regroup his family as they go to great lengths to help their mother recover. Humor, gentle irony, and fine acting make Hill Start a genial and diverting comedy.
