Reuben already has a complicated relationship with Gadi, his special needs son he abandoned in childhood. When Gadi, 35 loses his mother Reuben becomes’ Gadi’s legal guardian. Then Reuben needs a kidney transplant and Gadi wants to be the donor and things get really complicated. Directed by the father of a special needs child, Nevo Kimchi’s portrayal of Gadi is nuanced and compelling, welcoming a character who once would have been in the shadows to center stage on the big screen.  Without cliché, the film explores complex issues with humor and charm.
