Half a Ton of Bronze

Since 1938, the bronze equestrian statue of Alexander Zaid, a legendary Zionist pioneer who founded the Hashomer defense organization, stood guard proudly in Beit Shearim National Park in Israel. In 2007, thieves toppled the statue, presumably to sell it for scrap. This hilarious comedy, inspired by that incident, depicts the efforts of Zaid's grandson to recover the statue after it was stolen by Israeli Arabs and later sold to a sleazy scrap metal dealer. Non-stop laughter!
