Ushpizin

Directed by: Gidi Dar
90 Minutes, 2003

Moshe and Mali, a barren Orthodox couple, find themselves totally broke and destitute on the eve of the Jewish Holy day of Succot. As they pray desperately to the Lord to save them, the impossible happens. Their prayer is heard and they accidentally receive a charitable donation. A miracle however, doesn’t come without a test. Two escaped convicts appear uninvited on the couple’s doorstep. The outrageous behavior of these unholy messengers puts Moshe and Mali’s faith to the ultimate test.
