“A solid drama which benefits from Cohen’s expressive physicality and brawny screen presence.” – Screen Daily

Ovadia and his wife Rachel have been trying for a child for five years. Frustrated and close to giving up, Ovadia is offered a lucrative job as a debt collector, working for a dangerous local gangster. With the money he earns the couple can afford expensive treatment to help Rachel get pregnant but the extremely violent nature of Ovadia’s new job starts to take its toll. Ovadia soon learns that the way out is going to be longer and bloodier than he could have expected. Our Father offers a gritty, uncompromising view of Israeli life today.
