In this first cooperation between Israel’s acclaimed actor Moshe Ivgy and his daughter Dana Ivgy, a troubled father-daughter relationship is examined. The film traverses two time periods in the lives of Yitzhak, a renowned Tel Aviv theater director, and his daughter Goni who idolizes him. An only child, Goni’s world crumbles when her father is imprisoned for financial misconduct and her Russian mother succumbs to cancer. The loss and fall from grace are more than Yitzhak can bear. Seven year old Goni was her father’s emotional support, and now, at 25, she must overcome the grip of her father’s despair in order to begin her own life. Nominated for eight Israeli Ophir Awards, including Best Film, Director: Ron Ninio. Israel, 2010. 90 mins. Hebrew, Russian w/English subtitles. NY PREMIERE
