A Strange Course of Events
Three Films by Raphaël Nadjari • 1h 36m
Forty-something Saul (Ori Pfeffer, "The Testament") is a melancholic dreamer, with a tendency to run whenever things go wrong. He returns to Haifa one day for a reckoning with the father he has not seen in 5 years. However, getting along with an airy-fairy mother-in-law with a penchant for new age, a daughter on the verge of adolescence and a father who’s been converted to yoga is not easy. Will Saul find his place as a son, a father and a man?
