A passionate comic tragedy, "The World is Funny" is a film about bereavement, longing and the power of family. The film was nominated for record-breaking 15 Ophir Awards. Among the stories of writer Zafi, there is the story of estranged siblings. Yardena is shocked to discover she's pregnant since she hasn't had sex with anyone in years, least of all her husband who has been sleeping in a different room ever since the tragic death of her daughter in the army. Her older brother Meron has to deal with the return of Nessi, his oldest son, who just woke up from a nine year coma following a traumatic accident. Younger brother Golan is in the midst of his own tragedy – his girlfriend Natasha is dying of cancer. Helpless to do anything about her illness, he set out on a quest to reunite the Gashashim comedy trio for a performance, hoping to save her with laughter.
