When Yakov Cohen’s daughter is expelled from school due to ethnic discrimination, he decides to fight back. It’s 1983 and Yakov, a printer in Jerusalem, is just a regular guy. He has no knowledge, no money, no connections and no political experience. But he does have the will and the passion to take action, and a belief that he and and other Sephardic Jews should be able to hold their heads up high. Yakov and his friends start the first ethnic political group in Jerusalem, with an operation characteristic of the people they represent: not the suit-wearing types, but rather the people working their way up from the bottom. An Israeli dark comedy inspired by real-life events.\r\n\r\nScreened in Hebrew with English subtitles.
