Commencing just after the Six-Day War and amidst the turbulent climate of social change and post-colonialism in the '60s, "Turn Left at the End of the World" chronicles the relations between two communities -- Indian and Moroccan Jews -- in a remote Israeli desert town through the eyes of two girls coming of age. Nicole (Netta Garti) is a mouthy, flirty, but also naïve Moroccan teenager, and Sarah (Liraz Charhi) is thoughtful, intelligent, if quieter and more removed, whose family has just moved in next door.
Comic and unlikely relationships develop as the months of joblessness roll by. Tragedy descends upon both communities, but also joy. The Moroccans busy themselves with football, and the Indians follow suit, informally playing cricket in their free time. The game catches on despite the initial skepticism about playing it in the desert, and the British take notice and send their team out for a friendly match.
Rated R for nudity and sexual situations.
