Based on the novel by Meir Shalev
Co-Production Status: Israel, Russia
Filming Location: Israel
After over twenty years of life abroad, a 40-year-old writer comes back to his family house in Israel where he was raised and that he escaped – to face his brother who stayed instead, inherited their family business and married the woman who they both wanted.
My film is a story of great love, return and merciless time. It tells us that there are things in life when time is not a great healer at all, and there are sorts of mistakes that simply shouldn’t be made. It is an almost Biblical story that takes place nowadays – a powerful concentrate of love, hope and humor.
