Aharon has devoted his lifetime to raising his son Uri. They live together away from the real world. But Uri is autistic and now, as a young adult, it might be the right time for him to live in a specialised institution. While on their way to the institution, Aharon decides to run away with his son, knowing that Uri is not ready for this separation. Or is it the father who is not ready?

“One of the finest performances of the year comes from Israeli actor Shai Avivi as Aharon, the
father who has put his life and career on hold to care for his autistic son”
