Movie Info

In this drama from Israel, Amos (Shmuel Vilozni) is a psychologist and caseworker who works with a local mental hospital, bringing new patients to the facility. Amos is also a single father with a teenage son, Yurik (Michael Moshonov); Yurik is struggling with mental illness, and having seen what life is like in the institution, Amos wants to keep him at home if at all possible. The burden of work and caring for his son is becoming too much for Amos, and when he meets Bena (Rachel Santillan), a young woman working as a domestic for a man Amos has taken into care, he asks her to come work for him. Bena is grateful for the job, and Amos is attracted to her kindness and her simple beauty, but before long it becomes obvious Yurik is smitten with her too, which is not helping his precarious mental balance. Meanwhile, Bena is wrestling with a crisis of her own as her husband, in the country illegally, has gone missing. Bena was the first feature film from writer and director Niv Klainer.
