From the director of The Cakemaker, comes the story of Eli (Michael Moshonov), a former champion swimmer from Israel now giving swimming lessons in Chicago. When he learns his estranged father has died, he dutifully returns to Tel Aviv to sort out his father’s affairs. There he reconnects with his childhood friend and former swimming partner Yotam (Ofri Biterman) who lives with his Ethiopian fiancée Iris (Oshrat Ingadashet). There is a palpable attraction between the two men, an attraction they are loathe to discuss in this lyrical and understated love triangle. Ingedashet’s performance won her the Best Actress award at the 2022 Jerusalem Film Festival.
