Golden Voices (Russia and Israel)
Victor and Raya Frenkel were the golden voices of Soviet film dubbing for decades, lending their talent to everything from Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep in Kramer vs. Kramer to helping Fellini launch in the USSR. In 1990, with the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Frenkels immigrated to Israel, just like thousands of Soviet Jews, and are forced to adjust to the culture shock.
In their sixties, Victor’s and Raya’s attempts to use their vocal training results in bizarre and unexpected events during their first months in Israel, turning the beginning of the new chapter of their life into an amusing, painful, and absurd experience.

Two is a Family (France and United Kingdom)
Samuel (the irrepressible Omar Sy, The Intouchables) enjoys an A-list, hedonistic lifestyle on the sun drenched beaches of the Cote d’Azur. Life is good, until the day former lover Kristin (Clémence Poésy) arrives out of nowhere and deposits the fruits of their tryst, an infant daughter, Gloria, in his care.
Incapable of looking after a baby, Samuel rushes to the UK in an attempt to return the child to her mother, without any luck. He decides to stay in London and, after finding work as a television stuntman, their relationship slowly begins to bloom. When Kristin eventually reappears, Gloria has grown into a bright and effervescent eight year old, and the inseparable father daughter team finds their connections tested.
