Movie Info

Years after moving to American in order to pursue his fame and flee from the responsibilities of parenthood, an ambitious novelist discovers that no matter how far he runs, his past will always catch up. Moshe was a moderately successful Israeli novelist who believed he never received the fame that he was due. Fed up with work and feeling trapped after the birth of his son, Moshe abandoned his wife and child in order to seek his fortune in America. Tzach joined with an elite unit of the Israeli army and rose through the ranks by fearlessly facing any challenge that came his way - no matter how deadly. It always seemed as if he were challenging fate, or perhaps trying to live larger than life in order to fill some long empty void. One day, after his mother dies, Tzach discovers the address of his long lost father buried among his mother's paperwork. As the pent up anger of never knowing his father blasts like a cork off a champagne bottle, the enraged young man decides to make contact. The moment Moshe realizes that his son has finally tracked him down, the runaway father's delusion of denial comes crashing down all around him. Now, as father and son become locked on a confrontational collision course, Moshe is about to discover just how futile it is for a man to run from his true fate.
