The film's hero is Norman Oppenheimer (Gere), a small cog on the margins of the powerful money-making machine that is New York, dreaming to make it to the top. On the way, he cultivates a network of contacts, which leads him nowhere.

 

He then meets an Israeli member of Knesset (Ashkenazi) when it seems his political career is coming to an end.

 

Things become complicated once the MK is elected prime minister and asks Oppenheimer to be his political adviser.

 

Gere, one of Hollywood's biggest stars, will spend a few days in Jerusalem.
