Description

How to Watch

This moving tale of parental devotion focuses on stubborn, proud, aging divorcé Aharon, who has devoted his life to raising his son Uri.

Aharon (Shai Avivi, in a career best performance) and Uri (Noam Imber) live together in a gentle routine, away from the real world. But Uri is autistic, and now as he becomes a young adult his mother feels it might be time for him to live in a specialized home. Unconvinced that Uri is ready for this move, Aharon decides to run away with his son, taking him on an unpredictable, secret road trip. As their adventure goes off the rails, Aharon must face the fact that perhaps it is he who is not ready for change. Part of the 2020 Cannes label selection. Winner, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Screenplay, Ophir Awards; Audience Award, Boston Israeli Film Festival. (Alissa Simon)
