The Film

A tender (and humorous) drama about a protective father’s road trip with his autistic son and the anguish of separation. Uri is too old to continue living with his father Aharon, a stubborn divorcé and Uri’s loving caregiver. Their cocooned, codependent situation is upended when Uri’s mother insists he enter a specialized facility to attain independence. Deeply reluctant to let go, Aharon escapes with Uri on an adventure-filled trek. But with time catching up, both men must learn how to say goodbye. Suffused with emotion and graced by deeply felt performances, this life-affirming two-hander was nominated for nine Israeli Academy Awards, with wins for Best Director, Screenplay, Actor and Supporting Actor.
