Moon Hill

Precocious eleven-year-old Yoav and his family must leave their familiar neighborhood in Tel Aviv for new opportunties in the northern city of Nazrat Elit. Malka, his mother, finds a job in a hotel and with it, new confidence and assertiveness. His older sister Anat falls in love with a romantic would-be rock star whose own sister, Mor, survives an encounter with a talent-hunter with impure intentions. Yoav befriends Nir, a strange and sensitive boy his age, and together with their new friends they undertake an eventful journey to Moon Hill, the best place in the country from which to see the moon. It is also the place where the different stories converge and gain meaning.
