Ariel Navon is a Jerusalem bartender, art-school dropout, and graffiti artist. Late one night, he sees a strange blue light coming from an abandoned Jerusalem apartment. His investigation reveals that in the apartment is the missing modern-day prophet Rabbi Knafo, whose followers believe he is on speed dial to God. The Wonders—reminiscent of such classics as Chinatown and Rear Windowoffers up a commentary on cults, the misuse of money given by cult followers, and lost souls looking for something in which to believe.

“An unusual dramedy that offers a stylish and amusing riff on Chinatown by way of Alice in Wonderland.” —Variety
