Newly arrived in Israel from Ukraine, a single mother and son are deeply affected by their relationship with a religious neighbor, in this finely textured coming-of-age drama. Twelve-year-old Pinhas is mostly alone while his mom works to make ends meet. When the boy asks permission to join classmates in bar mitzvah studies, his mother refuses. To her dismay, Pinhas turns for help to a recent Chabad recruit, the new relationship changing all three lives in unforeseen ways. Nominated for seven Israeli Academy Awards.
