Aharon and his autistic son Uri live together in peaceful harmony, away from the pressures and stigmas of the real world. However, as Uri grows up, his mother Tamara feels that he should be around his peers and learn to live more independently in an assisted-living facility. When the time comes to leave, Aharon decides to run away with his son, knowing that Uri is not ready for this separation. But is it in fact Aharon, who isn’t ready? Packed with heart-wrenching emotion, this film is a bittersweet, life-affirming story about fatherly love and the difficulty of letting go.
