A dark comedy chronicling the trials and tribulations of a small circus troupe who visit the West Bank. When a lion escapes the camp, an unlikely alliance is forged between Russian lion tamer Mariana (Evgenia Dudina), Israeli Sergeant Bleiberg (Yoram Hatav), and a young Arab boy (Yousef Ibrahim), who join forces in a effort to find the beast before it can injure any unsuspecting townspeople. A charming, subtle, and politically astute comedy with more than enough heart to compensate for its low production values.
