“Ducks, Urban Legend” is a dark comedy set in a neighborhood on the “wrong” side of Tel-Aviv.

Five characters in three interwoven stories confront childhood traumas in pursuit of self-redemption.
They all experience a moment of grace; perhaps a turning point in each of their lives, that until now has been a constant struggle to survive.
Yossi and Chris fight for love. Anna and Asaf fight for financial survival, and Elias, a Christian Palestinian who was forced to collaborate with "Shin Bet”, fights for life.
Yossi, abandoned by his father as a child, desperately wants to marry Chris, a survivor of a sexual assault. He hustles to produce a big wedding but the marriage can’t solve their issues.
 Asaf, an orphan, abetted by his girlfriend Anna, attempts to solve his financial mess by using taxidermy on his dead grandpa to collect his grandpa’s pension money from the bank.
 Elias, a Christian Palestinian who grew up battling heart disease, is forced to collaborate with the Israeli Security Agency due to his desperate need for a heart transplant.
 Falling in love with Anna adds more turmoil to his compromised heart.
