Longing – געגועים

Screening in corporation with the Mid East Film Festival.

At first glance, middle-aged Ariel has it made: established, well-to-do, single and with no apparent worries. One day, after decades without contact, his college girlfriend Ronit invites him to lunch. She drops a bomb: when they broke up 20 years ago, she was pregnant and gave birth to a boy. But that eye-opener is only the first in a series of revelations that will have unpredictable consequences for people Ariel has yet to meet and for his own understanding of himself and his world. His need to know about a son he never knew he had (and certainly never thought he might have wanted) propels him into communities, families, and circumstances that are foreign and unexpected. Plunging himself into these tumultuous unknown waters causes him to reflect on what he might have had.
