This quirky and wry dramedy follows three siblings—Dorona and brothers Netanel and Shai—who, in the wake of their mother’s death, learn that the man who raised them is not their biological father. The revelation sends them on a road trip from Israel across France to discover the truth about their real father. Writer-director Shemi Zarhin explores an unraveling family secret and the bittersweet journey of self-discovery that follows.
