An offensive hand gesture sets into motion a tragic series of events in director Tzahi Grad's tense tale of one man who refuses to bend to the powers that be. It's Holocaust Memorial Day, and Michael Klienhouse's wife, Tamar, has just flipped 60-year-old war hero Dreyfus the finger. Enraged at the blatant act of disrespect, Dreyfus punches the gas of his car and nearly kills Tamar when he drives directly into her door. A law-abiding citizen who only wants justice for his wife, family man Michael is shocked when the authorities tell him that there is little they can do about the incident. As it turns out, Dreyfus has some pretty powerful friends, and never seems to have lost his battlefield mentality. Stunned by the willingness of police to overlook the incident and sent into a downward spiral of powerlessness, Michael finds himself newly invigorated as he sets about procuring a gun and seeking justice on his own terms.
