Synopsis

Ephraim Kishon was one of the great writers who defined the Israeli essence through their work. The Hungarian immigrant eventually became the most accurate voice of the young Jewish country, publishing dozens of satirical columns, books, plays and films. He sold tens of millions of books, was nominated twice for the Academy Awards and won 2 Golden Globes. Yet he could never write his own biography. At the age of 70, he invited college journalist Yaron London to assist him in unfolding his life story. The film uses animation to 'bring back to life' his persona and reenact intimate interviews, rare footage and home movies.
