Poignant meditation on family, loss, and the mental maps of homelessness.
The film navigates the intimate lives of 5 brothers and their mother, over the course of a decade, through the pains of exile and the joys of family bonding. Exploring the politics of belonging, displacement, and homosexuality, the film examines the hard decisions one Israeli family has to make and the intrictable bonds that unite them in the face of complicated life choices.
