Ariel (Shai Avivi, One Week and a Day) meets Ronit (Asi Levi, Wedding Doll), his ex-girlfriend, for the first time in 20 years, and is shocked to learn that she was pregnant at the time of their separation. As he tries to learn all he can about his lost son, Ariel also gets to know a version of himself he never knew existed. Winner of the 2017 Jerusalem Film Festival Audience award, Savi Gabizon’s (Nina’s Tragedies) new film is an extremely moving yet hilarious black comedy.

Winner – Best Screenplay Award, Israeli Film Academy
