Gadi is a child-adult with mild retardation, he has a unique sense of humor, an infectious laugh and endless optimism.
His mother’s sudden death forces Gadi to move temporarily to the house of his biological father, from whom he’s been estranged most of his life.
Reuven, Gadi’s father, absorbed in his own problems, has always been put off by interactions with his unusual son.
But the hidden love between father and son grows steadily stronger as they get to know each other again. Gadi’s endless optimism will console them all when the two of them have to cope with the tribulations that await them.
