Academy Award-nominee Harvey Keitel, Israeli superstar Lior Ashkenazi (Footnote), and Mark Ivanir (Homeland) star in this epic period drama spanning several generations of a family of bakers, from World War I and the inception of the British Mandate in Palestine through the mid-seventies in Israel. This emotional saga tells the story of a writer who returns to his family home in Israel after a long sojourn in the US, where he faces his brother who robbed him of his love and profession.

Directed by internationally celebrated Russian Jewish filmmaker Pavel Lungin (Cannes Film Festival winner Taxi Blues) and featuring Shira Haas (also in the Festival with The Conductor) and a cameo from Israeli theatrical grand dame Gila Almagor, Esau presents a modern retelling of the biblical story of Jacob and Esau from the book of Genesis.
