Following his wife’s untimely death, Reuven is thrust into caring for his grown son, who has special needs. The transition is fraught with difficulty for both as Reuven wrestles with the obligations of parenting an adult-age child, while 30-something Gadi grieves the loss of his mother. As each struggles to find his footing, each also expands his awareness and empathy in this intense and tender family drama.
