Sir Patrick Stewart and an impressive cast give bravura comic turns in this bank heist caper and coming-of-age tale. At the bank where his father works, 12-year-old Jonathan watches helplessly as his father has a heart attack while testing a new security system. In a cruel double blow, the evil bank manager refuses to pay the father's pension. In the aftermath, widow Dorit leaves her son in the care of his cantankerous grandfather, a former Zionist freedom fighter now barely existing in a nursing home. Mortified when his mother begins dating the bank manager, Jonathan and the aging misfits hatch a plot to rob the bank that wronged his family.
