Itamar, an overweight and depressed young man, unwillingly returns to his overprotective mother’s apartment in the suburbs after suffering a mental breakdown.

About the Director:

Isak Kohaly was born in Padua, Italy from Israeli and Iranian parents - and moved to Tel Aviv, Israel to pursue his dream as a filmmaker. Right after enrolling at Steve Tisch School of Film and Television in Tel Aviv, he made his first short film Shots (2014), screened at a number of film festivals - and later on his autobiographical part Christmas special, part documentary short Isak’s Best Christmas Ever, which aired prime time on national Israeli television. His greatest sources of inspiration come from his identity as a gay man of multicultural background, and the topic of mental health, explored in his latest short film, Complicated. Isak is currently working on two narrative short films and a feature film version of Complicated.
