Aharon has devoted his life to raising his son Uri. They live together in a gentle routine, away from the real world. But Uri has autism, and now as a young adult, it might be time for him to live in a specialised home. While on their way to the institution, Aharon decides to run away with his son and hits the road, knowing that Uri is not ready for this separation. Or is it, in fact, his father who is not ready?
The shared coming-of-age experience as father and son embark on a journey of escape becomes a journey that ultimately leads to a parting and a new beginning.
