The Human Resources Manager

The human resources manager of an industrial bakery is charged with taking the body of a deceased employee home to Romania.

Scandal rocks the image of a thriving industrial bakery in Jerusalem: one of its employees, the victim of a suicide bomber, is identified by the pay slip on her person. And yet the company hadn't even noticed she wasn't at work. Accused of being inhumane, it tells the human resources manager to take the woman's body back home to Romania. The HR manager, with his own personal and family problems, sees this mission as punishment, but finds himself getting his taste for life back as the trip progresses...

Eran Riklis's road movie is slow and moving, linking humorous situations and other adventures with cheerful abandon. A voyage of discovery, leading from death to life.
