Plot Summary

After James, a blind man, inexplicably regains his vision, he becomes possessed by a drive to make a better life for himself. However, his new improvements -- a nicer home, a higher paying job, tailored suits, luxury car -- leave little room for the people who were part of his old, simpler life. As his relationships buckle under the strain of his snowballing ambition, it becomes uncertain if James can ever return from darkness.

    The Ticket is underwhelming in several ways, but the performance driving it is magnetic — and helps alleviate some of the bludgeoning obviousness of a morality tale that New York-based Israeli writer-director Ido Fluk hasn’t fully figured out how to tell. show more
