This quirky and wry dramedy follows three Jewish Israeli siblings - Dorona and brothers Netanel and Shai - who, in the wake of their mother's death, learn the man who raised them is not their biological dad. The revelation sends them on a road trip from Israel across France to discover the truth about their real father. The sixth feature from writer-director Shemi Zarhin explores an unraveling family secret and the bittersweet journey of self-discovery that follows.

Zissman-Cohen's subtle features and the way they flood with repressed feeling make each moment a separate, fully formed shard in a disjointed mosaic of emotional truth.
Diana Clarke, Village Voice
An emotionally rich, beautifully textured family dramedy that touches on a wealth of interpersonal issues with buoyancy, charm and grace. It's one of the best films so far this year.
