Israel, 2022, 127 minutes
Language Hebrew, with English Subtitles
Genre Drama

Eli, an Israeli swimming instructor returns to Tel Aviv from Chicago after his estranged father dies. A series of events involving an old friend, who has a hiking accident, and his Ethiopian immigrant florist fiancée leads to a psychologically complex story about relationships, childhood emotional baggage, and life and death. Visually striking and poetic with restrained performances that prove unexpectedly buoyant for a narrative about
personal tragedy.
