Winner of the Jury Prize and Audience Award at the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival. In this exquisitely sensitive film, celebrated filmmaker Nir Bergman (Saving Neta, Broken Wings) captures the poignancy of parenthood beset by numerous challenges, including divorce, disability and encroaching old age. Aharon—beautifully played by Shai Avivi (One Week and a Day, Longing) in a performance that won him an Israeli Oscar—is a single father, who has devoted his life to raising his autistic son Uri. He now faces a heartbreaking dilemma as Uri’s mother presses their son to enter a group home to learn independence. Though both men fear the separation, they must learn to let go and move forward.

Winner of 4 Israeli Film Academy Awards: Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor

Selected for The Newcomers section at Cannes 2020

Review "Handling its themes with sensitivity and respect, the latest film from Nir Bergman is a gratifyingly textured portrait of a loving father son relationship teetering on the brink of suffocating co-dependency." (Screen Daily)
