A triangle of fatherhood ties, a triangle of love.

 

70 year old Yaakov Fidelman (Sasson Gabai, The Band's Visit) hangs on with all his might to the  antique restoration workshop which has been his life's work. After his long-time business partner passes away, Fidelman rejects his son Noah's idea to close the business and build an apartment complex on the site.  He believes that with the help of his new apprentice Anton, he'll find a way to save his workshop, his world and his solitary way of life.

 

When Anton falls in love with Hava, Noah's pregnant wife, the two young men compete not only over a father, but also over a woman and the baby she carries.

 

Will the old man understand that his only hope for redemption is to learn to let go, admit and accept his weaknesses and the dictate of time?
