When filmmaker Yair Agmon goes on separate vacations with each of his parents - a pleasure cruise with his dad and a tour of “Great Hebrew Authors” in Ukraine with his mom - he gets conflicting stories about their relationship. How did his religious, forty-something year old mother end up having a child with a secular married farmer and father of six? And, in the end, does it matter? Funny, wacky, and full of love, Agmon shows us his parents with all their quirks, exaggerations, wretchedness, and grandeur.


Followed by a Skype Q&A with director Yair Agmon
