An Israeli. A Palestinian. A suicide bomber. It's a comedy. Eitan Enoch - nicknamed "Croc" - is a thirty-something Tel Aviv yuppie whose life is turned upside down one morning when he narrowly escapes the suicide bombing of the bus he takes to work. Two days later, Croc finds himself in a second explosion and again manages to emerge unscathed. Shortly afterwards, he's sitting in a cafe in Jerusalem when a third suicide bomber strikes. Again Croc survives. With the coincidence of these three attacks, Croc is turned into a (reluctant) celebrity. To the Israeli media, he is "The Man They Couldn't Kill!" So, of course, the Palestinian terrorists who have been organizing the attacks feel Croc must be taken out. Meanwhile, Fahmi, a young Palestinian bomb-maker with a conscience, is lying n a coma in a hospital somewhere in Israel. As Fahmi tells us his own story, we begin to realize that there is a fourth bombing to come - one that involves both Fahmi and Croc.
