Beyond the Walls

In Israel's Central Prison, the security officer is corrupt, supplying drugs and stirring the hatred between Jewish and Arab prisoners to his advantage. Uri, in for 12 years for armed robbery, and Issan, in for 50 years for PLO violence, command the respect of their cells. When the Arabs are framed for the murder of a Jewish prisoner and a young inmate commits suicide rather than lie about what happened, Uri and Issan form an unlikely partnership, leading the security block on a strike.

Ladies First

Forty-eight women: commediennes, stand-up artists, celebrities, singers, and actresses. Each tells the filthiest chauvanistic joke she knows, which developed into a talk about men, sex, relations, and humore. The result, apart from being extremely funny, enables the women to develop theories, theses, and insights regarding life, intimacy, men and more; all in extreme openness.

Nicky's Family

Nicholas Winton, an Englishman, organized the rescue of 669 Czech and Slovak children just before the outbreak of World War II. But he never spoke about these events with anyone for more than half a century. His exploits would have probably been forgotten if his wife, fifty years later, hadn't found a suitcase in the attic, full of documents and transport plans.
