The Burglar

The Burglar

A Feature film by Hagar Ben Asher

Produced by Les Films du Poisson

Release in France : 29/01/2019


    Alex, almost 18, is abandoned by her mother, is lonely and fearful. She struggles with life and the responsibilities of a forced adulthood. When her apartment is broken into one day, she is emotionally intrigued by the chaos the burglars have left behind.

    She decides to visit her neighbors. When no one answers, she slips in through the unlocked door. She finds money on a table, but does not touch it. The next day she changes her mind and returns.

    From that moment on, something lights up in her, something that gives her the strength and the confidence to meet Michael, a German geologist working near the Dead Sea. She lies to him about a lot, but not about her feelings.

    Her increasing addiction to both the new 'hobby' and the man puts her at risk. A lot is at stake.
