From the director of Lost Embrace (Silver Bear Winner Berlin 2004). Ariel Perelman is a lawyer like his father but he wants to do things his own way. While his father represents a variety of colourful petty criminals and cuts a lively figure, Ariel deals, literally, with ghosts. He works for the justice department representing clients in absentia. While his life is manageable, it is rather dull. Things change for the better when Ariel meets and marries a beautiful woman, whom he felt was out of his reach, and when she gives birth to their son his confidence grows. In the midst of these changes, his father begins to reach out to him with some urgency. At this stage Ariel must make life-changing decisions. This poignant family drama has comic moments that highlight the relationship between father and son and their struggle to overcome their differences and communicate with each other.
