After years of battling false mental diagnoses, Oren picks up a camera, his only outlet for human interaction, and embarks on a life-changing journey.
A touching and humorous film about loss, life chances, love, family, illness, the end and the beginning. It is also about the search for roots and the therapeutic role of cinema, which can be an escape or create new worlds. This bittersweet family story is abundantly saturated with emotions, although its main character has serious difficulty with showing it. Oren was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome and the fact that he is an adopted child makes it difficult for him to adapt. Suddenly, his life changes with the help of the camera, which becomes an extraordinary therapy tool assisting him on a long journey in search of his identity.
