Parental Advisory: Disturbing Content & Nudity

A troubled teen’s desperate efforts to unite his broken family spin out of control in this modern Greek tragedy nominated for ten Israeli Academy Awards including Best Film. Almost everything in 15-year-old Eli’s life is on the brink of disaster. Overweight and dealing with an eating disorder, he lives in a seedy Tel Aviv neighbourhood with his mother and her possessive husband, two ex-junkies preoccupied with living a normative life, while his alcoholic father is an unemployed artist and street philosopher. Eli tries to escape his parents’ fate and be a responsible adult. A beautifully acted examination of anguished characters fighting to overcome their circumstances

Supported by Consulate General of Israel in Hong Kong & Macau
