    • Synopsis
    • Moshe's life seems to have hit rock bottom. His many small business ventures are going under. He can't even afford to pay rent on his disheveled basement apartment. 20 years ago Moshe was a moderately successful poet in Israel, but never got the recognition he felt he deserved. When his son was born, his feelings of entrapment and disappointment prevailed. He left for New York to seek his fortune and never looked back.
      Tzach is a handsome young man, serving as a soldier in an elite unit of the Israeli army. Tzach lives on the edge, risking his life in every possible way, as though trying to ease some internal wound. After his mother's death, Tzach finds his father's address among some papers, and decides to contact him, unleashing years of pent up anger and resentment.
      The contact with Tzach changes Moshes life, and his carefully constructed world of denial begins to crumble. Father and son are now on a collision course with destiny and with each other, and Moshe learns that try as he might, he cannot escape the sins of the past….
      This is a film about father and son, and the elusive quest for redemption…
