The virtual invincibility of powerful evil forces in modern society is portrayed frequently in films, and here it's explored with Israeli flavor, to satisfying effect.
A depressed former hi-tech dropout and his surgeon wife have a violent encounter with road rage, and after trying to take the matter to the police discover the good citizen's route is not going to get them very far. They could cut their losses and get on with their lives, except that the emptiness and anger they've been feeling lately doesn't leave them much life to get back to anyway.
It's "Network" ('I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!') meets "Eastern Promises" and "Rambo" on the streets of Tel Aviv.
There are points at which my suspension of disbelief was somewhat strained, but I accepted these minor weaknesses in the spirit of the fable of someone refusing to be further beaten down by the corrupt systems of all our lives.
