Dir. Savi Gabizon | 104 min
Narrative Israel 2017 Hebrew with English subtitles

Monday, May 76:15 PM Edlavitch DCJCC

Wednesday, May 97:15 PM AFI Silver Theatre

One of Israel’s biggest hits of the year! Nominated for 13 Israeli Academy Awards including best film.

In this achingly funny and bittersweet tragicomedy, Shai Avivi (One Week and a Day) plays Ariel, a contented, well-off bachelor whose comfortable life is thrown into disarray when he learns that he is a father—and has been for nearly two decades.

What he discovers next is a bombshell of even greater magnitude, and one that forces Ariel to grapple with parental responsibility, existential regret, and the potential for love and human connection.
