Nir Bergman’s (In Therapy, Broken Wings) affecting dramedy explores the complications of family ties, the rights of the differently abled, and the melancholy of aging. Aharon, a middle-aged divorcé, has devoted himself to raising his son, Uri, who is autistic. Uri is becoming a young man, and his mother is eager for him to move away from her ex, but Uri and Aharon are reluctant to separate. Bergman’s tender portrayal is ever so human, and the father-son journey is filled with triumphs, defeats, and the quiet, magical moments that make up a life together. World premiered at the 2020 Cannes Film Festival and nominated for nine Ophir Awards, including Best Feature Film.
This film previously played in the 2021 Jewish Film Festival.
