In this achingly funny and bittersweet tragicomedy, contented and well-off bachelor Ariel’s comfortable life is thrown into disarray when a phone call reveals that he is a father—and has been for nearly two decades.
Winner of the 2017 Jerusalem Film Festival Audience award, Longing explores the corners of the human heart from unique angles.
