Who is Ben?
Played by Daniel (Mooki) Niv, Ben could never make decisions. When he was a baby he could not be sure who he liked better… his mom or his dad. Later, he was not sure if he prefers the boys or the girls. He chose music.
He never made any money, lives off his parents. Two years ago he found religion for five days but decided it wasn't for him. That's when he met Hilary, a good Jewish New York City girl who came for a visit. Ben introduced her to the best humus in Israel. They fell in love. But Hilary had to go back to New York. And Ben again could not decide what to think… so at the age of 30, for the first time, Ben decides to make up his mind…
the tickets and stay in
Prague with me?..."
Who is Emma?
Played by Naruna De-Macedo Kaplan, Emma likes to tell stories about herself to herself. She likes to re-invent herself over and over and over again. But in reality she has the talent of falling in love with the wrong guys. Or, as Aba-Even would put it: she doesn't miss any opportunity to miss an opportunity.
You and me here...
You are not going to see me
after a few hours..."
