Mr. Predictable

When Adi was five years old, his father made him swear to be a good boy and always be responsible. After his death in the war in Lebanon, Adi had no choice but to keep his promise for life. Years later, a computer error causes Adi to believe that he has cancer, and suddenly all those years of being predictable and just-shy-of-doormat agreeable seem like a tragic waste of time. Fortunately Adi meets sweet, free-spirited Natalia, who seems to have no fear of life. Now he has to choose between merely existing and a chance at genuine happiness. Produced by Leon and Moshe Eldery, with music by Aviv Cohen Hashani.
