Amos is a mental-health worker, widower, and father to Yurik, a mentally disabled teenager. One day, while visiting one of his patients, Amos stumbles uponBena, an illegal Thai worker. Instead of turning her in, he brings her home to care for Yurik, where Bena finds herself trapped between father and son.

It’s a film about illegal workers in Israel, about what it means to raise alone a handicapped child, but most of all about love.
