“A charming, picaresque period piece that offers entertainment for teens and adults” – Variety
An action-packed family friendly adaptation of the beloved book by renowned Israeli writer David Grossman.
Nono wants to be like his father – the best police inspector in the world – but he constantly gets in trouble. Two days before his Bar Mitzvah, he is sent away to his uncle Shmuel, who is supposed to get him back on track. But things don’t go as planned and Nono begins a quest to find out about his mother in a strange world of disguises, chases, French chansons… and the arrival of Zohara, a mysterious woman whose secrets change Nono’s life forever. Stylish, sharply written and wonderfully entertaining.
