Longtime friends and collaborators Erez Tadmor and Guy Nattiv’s second feature film together (after 2007’s Strangers) is a travel movie that follows a father and son en route to Greece where the father is meant to attend a ceremony. Avraham (Makram Khoury) is a Greek-born Holocaust survivor and the former leader of Be’er Tuvia local council who is asked by his successor to travel to the city of Arta in Greece and represent the council in a town twinning ceremony. Yehuda (Zohar Strauss), Avraham’s son is an ultraorthodox Jewish rapper; and though the two have been estranged for many years, he does choose to go on this trip so that he can keep an eye on his elderly father. Avraham is hoping to locate the man who saved his life in the Holocaust, and this physical journey to Greece, for all its spellbinding vistas and the changes it has seen over time, soon becomes a journey into the deepest depths of memory; an emotional and spiritual sojourn where father and son are offered an opportunity to make amends to each other.
Makram Khory won an Ophir Award for Best Actor for his performance in the film.
