Synopsis:
After 30 years at sea, single dad Aharon Avital arrives home in time for the birth of his first grandchild and looks forward to living a normal life at last. He is appointed Head of the Marine Department at the Ashdod Port.  Almost immediately, he clashes with Azulay, a corrupt, yet benevolent dock boss whose men admire him. Disrupting the Sephardi-Ashkenazi, generational and class status quo that has reigned at the port for years, Aharon nonetheless presses forward with his clean-up agenda. Simultaneously, he falls in love with Yelena, an attractive single mom who works as a customs official at the port. Aharon will eventually have to make a cruel choice only to discover that a much larger force—privatization—has reshuffled the cards.
