The story of a complicated relationship between an aging father and his son with special needs, whom he abandoned while he was still a young boy. Reuben’s (60) kidneys are failing and his son Gadi (35), wants to donate one of his own kidneys to help save his father’s life. However, the transplant committee objects to the procedure claiming that Rueben, acting as Gadi’s sole legal guardian, does not have the right to authorize such an invasive procedure. Through the film’s portrayal of a relationship full of love, rejection, and co-dependency, it sheds some light and questions the importance of human life, connection and if life is even possible without it either one of them.
Directed by Jacob Goldwasser.
