The Dinner

Emma and Gregory, immigrants from Russia, are finding it hard to adapt to life in Israel. Their lives cross paths with Alon, an amateur artist and owner of a high-tech company who is in crisis with his wife Yael. Alon is preoccupied with his business and Yael is having an affair with his good friend Amnon.
In order to survive, Emma starts working as a nude model with Alon in an Art workshop. They become so close that she feels her work as a model is upsetting her life and she decides to leave. By chance, Gregory is hired as a production worker at Alon’s high-tech company.
The truth comes out when Alon invites Gregory and Emma to a festive dinner in his home. The unexpected encounter changes the protagonists’ lives forever.
