Film Synopsis

Nadav, 29, is a young Israeli man who’s come to New York to pursue his dreams. By day, he plays the trumpet, and by night he works as a “Professional Cuddler” in order to finance his first album. He’s so successful at his night job, he stops renting an apartment of his own, and spends the winter nights in the homes of lonely women.
The film follows the first meeting between Nadav and Netta, 32, an Israeli woman he met online and fell in love with. They’ve been having an internet affair for several months, and now she’s finally boarded a plane to New York. Will they be able to bridge the gap between the digital and physical worlds?
