Debut with a clean design about a young Orthodox Jewish student with failing parents and a failing body. He silently seeks solace in long and increasingly desperate roamings through the city at night and a clumsy way of approaching women, vainly searching for redemption.
Haim-Aron is a dedicated ultraorthodox student. When he has a heart attack, his father miraculously revives him. But Haim-Aron is no longer the same, physically or spiritually. In impressive black-and-white, we follow him as he strays further and further from his conservative surroundings. Was his salvation really God’s will?
