Description

With his ex-wife's untimely demise, Reuven suddenly thrust into the position of caring for his now-grown son, whom he first considers placing in a group home. The transition is fraught with difficulty for both, as Reuven wrestles with the obligations of parenting a child with disabilities, while thirty-something Gadi grieves the loss of the mother who nurtured and shielded him. Adjusting to their new circumstances, Gadi lends a hand in his father’s Jerusalem auto repair shop and befriends the locals at a neighborhood café. Reuven vows to atone for past shortcomings, over time warming to Gadi's boundless optimism, infectious laugh and seemingly infinite capacity for love. Their co-dependent bond tested by tribulations that prompt complicated ethical and legal questions with profound ramifications.
