★★★★“Superb Performances…Drawn on the writer’s personal experience, Nir Bergman’s father-son runaway adventure delivers poignancy through myriad insights…Beautifully observed and saturated with warmth” The Guardian
Aharon has devoted his life to raising his son Uri. They live together in a gentle routine, away from the real world. But Uri is autistic, and now as a young adult it might be time for him to live in a specialized home. While on their way to the institution, Aharon decides to run away with his son and hits the road on an adventure, knowing that Uri is not ready for this separation. Or is it, in fact, his father who is not ready?
★★★★“Israeli filmmaker Nir Bergman’s beautifully played two-hander is a father-son story with a twist, a warm, multi-faceted look at how autism plays into parent-child bonds in both good and bad ways.” Empire
Israeli-Italian production in Hebrew with subtitles.
