The Visit


Hagar comes to visit her father in a Jerusalem nursing home. Before entering his room she looks at him and chooses to escape, but a series of mishaps forces her to spend the day in the building, masquerading as a caretaker. The short visit turns into a journey between the narrow corridors of the Israeli society.
