It seems to happen at some point in everyone’s life: you are permitted (or forced)
to start over again from square one. That very thing happens to the protagonists of Year Zero. Employing the popular multiple-stories genre, the film offers a portrait of contemporary life as seen in the everyday realities of several characters. A real estate agent upset with his wife’s newest pregnancy, throwing their marriage into turmoil;
a blind man who has lost his seeing eye dog; a suspicious businessman returning to Israel to care for his ailing father; a single mother trying to stay afloat after losing her job; a radio technician producing a program that could shed light on his past. These characters, connected by various relationships, must come to terms with unexpected,
though transformational, reversals. Their lives unavoidably connect and intertwine and create a beautiful and enchanting collage.
