Yoni’s life is complicated. He's almost 13 and obsessed with becoming bigger, taller and stronger. His classmates bully him every chance they get, and his parents barely say a word to each other. When his autistic brother, Tomer, locked away for years in an institution, returns to live at home with them right before Yoni’s Bar Mitzvah, the already unstable family threatens to crumble. Yoni has no choice but to “become a man” and learn to deal on his own with this strange brother he hasn't seen in 10 years. The entire family has to face painful truths as mistakes of the past and sorrows of the present are confronted in this beautifully acted and rendered film about perseverance and the redemptive power of love.
