Synopsis

This quirky and wry comedy follows three Jewish Israeli siblings—Dorona and brothers Netanel and Shai—who, in the wake of their mother's death, learn the man who raised them is not their biological dad. The revelation sends them on a road trip from Israel across France to discover the truth about their real father. The sixth feature from writer-director Shemi Zarhin explores an unraveling family secret and the bittersweet journey of self-discovery that follows.
