DESCRIPTION

One of the linguistic hypotheses is that language we are using influences our way of thinking more or less. Young Israeli Yoav wants to become French at all costs, rejects his origin and the Hebrew language. In his escape from his nationality and his search for a new identity in Paris, his inseparable companion is a pocket-sized, though quite extensive, Franco-Israeli dictionary.
