Description

When Reuven (Doval’e Glickman, Shtisel), a surly mechanic, reluctantly takes in his exuberant adult son, Gadi (Nevo Kimchi, Footnote), who has an intellectual disability, both men find their worlds changed: Reuven is determined to make up for his shortcomings as a parent before it’s too late, while Gadi finds himself needing to take care of his father in return. A heartwarming story full of love, life, and human connection.
