Angina Pectoris tells the fictitious story of an Israeli defense minister, Dan Yasour who placates the religious right and gets a seemingly innocuous bill passed so Israeli Jews only receive organ transplants from Jewish donors. Absurdly when the politician himself needs a heart transplant, the only heart available is from a Palestinian Arab. Angina Pectoris is a biting satire that posits the ridiculous. But the humorous situations uncover deeper issues about identity in Israel and today's world pertaining to culture, religion and politics in a broader and multicultural context.
