After years of estrangement, Max returns to the home of his Orthodox immigrant parents to visit his dying father. Can acceptance and love still be possible despite past pains and ideological rifts?
After years of estrangement, Max returns to the home of his ultra-Orthodox immigrant family to visit his father who is suffering from Parkinson and is near death. As he reconnects with his siblings and parents, memories resurface, unraveling the complexities of his relationship with his larger-than-life father. Spanning various timeframes and places, the story explores questions of religious faith, loyalty, and the possibility of rekindling love and achieving genuine acceptance.
Our story draws inspiration from Nachman’s immigration to Israel as a child. Through it, we want to dive into the complexity of family ties and dynamics. While both of us come from religious families, and neither of us are religious today, we wanted to tell a story that looks at the world from which we come with a complex POV in order to examine the possibility to bridge gaps and repair relationships despite the pain of the past.
