Seventy year-old Yaakov Fidelman (Sasson Gabai, The Band's Visit) has spent his life restoring antique furniture, but repairing the relationships in his life is far more difficult. After his long-time business partner passes away, Fidelman rejects his son Noah's plan to close his struggling business and build an apartment complex on the site. Fidelman believes that with the help of his mysterious new apprentice Anton (Henry David, A Touch Away WJFF 2008), he'll find a way to save his workshop and his solitary way of life. When Anton falls in love with Noah's pregnant wife, the two young men compete not only for a woman, but also for Fidelman’s fatherly love as the old man struggles for redemption.
