Five Hours from Paris, winner of the Best Picture Award at the 2009 Haifa Film Festival, tells the story of Yigal (Dror Keren - nominated for Best Actor by the Israeli Film Academy), a taxi driver from Bat Yam - a working class suburb of Tel Aviv. Yigal has a weakness for French chansons.

Lina (Helena Yaralova) is a music teacher who once dreamed of becoming a professional pianist but was forced to give up her ambitions.

Yigal, like Lina, has already given up, but he has one dream left - to fly to Paris. But he's afraid to fly.

Yigal and Lina are both lonely and feel that life has passed them by. They're a little lost until they meet. Yigal is charmed by Lina's beauty and immediately falls in love with her. For Lina, it takes a little longer.

Slowly, the two protagonists become closer and discover that even at middle age it's possible to fall in love like in a French film. When they're together, Bat Yam turns into Paris, life becomes more exciting and more surprising, and more charming.

Then life throws them a curve ball and they have to choose between their newfound love and the old, safe reality.
