    Summary
    Carefree Joseph (Monsieur Batignole's Jule Sitruk) is 18-years-old and about to do his compulsory service in the Israeli army. When he takes a mandatory blood test, he is more worried about traces of drugs showing up to the dismay of his army commander father Alon (the fabulous Pascal Elbe), than anything else. The results however come back and shockingly reveal that he is not in fact his parents biological son after he was inadvertently switched at birth with Yacine (Mehdi Dehbi), the son of a Palestinian family from the West Bank.
