Nominated for Best Actor and Best Picture Awards (Israeli Oscars), 2013.
A beautiful and quirky film about living life to the fullest, second chances and the magic of everyday life. Seventy-eight-year-old Avraham is a Greek Holocaust survivor and an amateur magician. He is reunited with his estranged, Hassidic son, Yehuda, for a road trip through Greece in search of the man who saved his life more than 50 years ago. Along the way, the duo encounters the beautiful Greek prostitute, Maria, who also joins them on their journey. Meanwhile, Yehuda is on a quest for his father's acceptance. A heart-warming story of a father and son full of magic and lessons about the powerful pull of the past.
