Summary

Aharon has devoted his life to raising his son Uri. They live together in a gentle routine, away from the real world. But Uri is autistic, and now as 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 and hits the road, knowing that Uri is not ready for this separation. Or is it, in fact, his father who is not ready?

Review

A star rating of 5 out of 5.

Insightfully written by Dana Idisis (TV's On the Spectrum) and sensitively directed by the Israeli film-maker Nir Bergman, this drama convinces on every level, from the profound chemistry between its leads to its authentic, cliché-free portrayal of autism. Aharon (Shai Avivi) and his autistic son, Uri (Noam Imber), live what seems like a perfect life together. Aharon's ex-wife, however, thinks it's time for Uri to move into a home where he can be with people his own age, and has won a court order to make it happen. Convinced that only he can give their son the love and care he needs, Aharon takes flight with him, leading to revelatory encounters with people from his past. Avivi's performance is a masterclass in understatement and quiet power, while Imber's absolute conviction strikingly erases the line between performer and character. Nothing feels forced or false, and when tears flow at the end, they're fully earned. An unmissable gem.
