Ten year-old Adam (Yoav Sadian) feels isolated and guilty after his older brother dies in a car accident. Everything changes when he forms a remarkable friendship with a magical creature, known in local folklore as an “Abulele” (Idan Barkai). Adam tells only his school crush, Tamar (Bar Minali), of Abulele’s existence. When a government Special Forces Unit called “Thunder” appears in the neighborhood on a mission to capture Abulele, the two try to protect him. This charming family film shows the importance of love, friendship, and moving on from tragedy.
