    • Synopsis
    • In this day and age, when money actually can buy you love, many parents spend most of their days in work, leaving their adolescent children alone at home.
      16 years old Gur and 17 years old Daniel are already used to being "latchkey kids", returning to their empty home after school, being in charge of their daily routine. While Daniel tries to deal and cope with the social world outside, Gur still feels that home is his only safe fortress, his shelter and womb from which he refuses to disconnect. He will do whatever in his power to not stay there alone, and to prevent Daniel's attempts to become an independent woman in the "grown-ups world". When Gur finds out that Daniel and her boyfriend are about to go "all the way", he insists on reminding her that her true place in the world is by his side.
