An estranged father and son – a 78-year-old Greek Holocaust survivor (Makram Khoury) and a newly Orthodox Hasidic rapper (Zohar Shtrauss) – find themselves together on a road trip to locate a life-saving magician from the father’s past. The occasionally absurd journey takes this disjointed duo from Israel to Greece, ultimately forcing the two men to confront their relationship. From directors Guy Nattiv (The Flood) and Erez Tadmor (A Matter of Size) comes a beautiful collaboration about love, life, and forgiveness.
