In this Israeli-Italian production, Aharon has devoted his life to raising his autistic son, Uri, with gentle routines, away from the real world. But now, with Uri becoming a young adult, it might be time for him to live in a specialized home. While on their way to the institution, Aharon decides to run away with his son—feeling that Uri is not ready for the separation. Or is it, in fact, his father Aharon who is not ready?
