The Cutoff Man

Gabi cuts off the water supply to people who don’t pay their bills. There’s no choice, it’s either that or unemployment. The more he cuts, the more money he makes.

Like a thief he sneaks into back yards, where the water meters are and like an executor he roams the neighborhood streets. When people see him they curse and humiliate him. they blame him for their situation.

Gabi keeps cutting, he has a family to support. How long will it be before he breaks?

Gabi’s son, who dreams of being a professional soccer player, is his only hope. But when one day Gabi comes to cut off the water of a sponsor on his son’s team, it looks like their dream will shatter.

 Moshe Ivgi as you’ve never seen him before, in one of his best roles ever.
