Meir and Tova are a retired couple living in an upscale Tel Aviv apartment complex, their children long vanished into adulthood, the two parents left with each other — which, after 46 years, has gotten old. She’s bored; he’s a grump. Then one day they get swept into the orbit of middle-aged Itzik, a gregarious, confident, flashy, effortlessly insinuating bachelor moved into the penthouse upstairs. His influence is invigorating: Almost immediately, the older neighbors find themselves more attentive to their grooming, feeling more adventurous, eager for this neighbor’s flattering attentions. But like wallflowers unexpectedly befriended by the cool kids, they also rapidly become over-dependent on their new pal.
