Synopsis

 

Nominated for eight Israeli Academy Awards including Best Film, LACES is a wholly engaging, tender family ‘dramedy’ about the knotty relationship between an aging, irascible mechanic and the exuberant special-needs son he abandoned long before.
LACES is a charming tale full of optimism and humour. Reubenas kidneys are failing. His son Gadi wants to donate one of his own kidneys to help save his fatheras life. A rare, honest depiction of special-needs characters, told with gentle humor and sensitivity, LACES is the highly personal project of director Jacob Goldwasser, himself a parent of a special-needs child.
