Jerusalem's largest bakery is making news. When one of their female employees is killed in a suicide bombing and her body remains unclaimed, they are accused of inhumanity and indifference. It falls to the unhappy title character, a man with family problems of his own, to claim the body from the morgue and deliver it to the next of kin.

On behest of the company, the Human Resources Manager embarks on a complex journey from Jerusalem to frozen Romania. He finds himself leading an awkward convoy that includes the dead woman’s rebellious son, a pesky journalist, a quirky honorary consul, an elderly driver and a coffin. Far from home, the HR Manager rediscovers his own humanity and his ability to care for human resources. Based on a novel by A.B. Yehoshua, this quirky road movie from the director of The Syrian Bride (PSIFF 2005) nabbed five Israeli Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director. Winner, Audience Award, Locarno Film Festival.
